Finally, Spring is here!

Last Sunday I was feeling a little glum so my husband and I powered through our chores and took ourselves down to the Camellia Gardens, which we’re lucky to live just around the corner from. I took my camera, and he his book.

Within a few minutes of viewing the world through my macro lens I was thoroughly grounded and feeling calm once again. I have to admit, it’s been months since I took my camera out and about as sewing has been my main pass-time lately (that and watching my husband play video games while I stay in my blanket cocoon on the couch…I don’t like winter much).

Here’s a selection of my favourites.


As always, I shoot on an Olympus OMD-EM5. These were all using my Macro lens using various settings, hence why there are a number of variations of the same flower. I love slowly getting closer and discovering the incredible detail we so often miss in passing.


A trip to Nelson Bay

Last week I didn’t feel like I had anything to share, and this week I’m struggling for words. There’s a lot going on at the moment and I’m just not inspired to share my musings at the moment. After half writing one post, I decided this is probably the best time to share some photos instead.

At the beginning of February my husband and I took a trip up to Nelson Bay with his parents to revisit the location of many family holidays. I’d never been before, so it was nice to explore a new area with my camera in between the rain. I’ve still got a few more photos to edit, but I thought I’d start with these as they have been sitting there on my computer ever since the holiday nearly two months ago already. Man, is time just flying by!

I hope you enjoy!

Ps. I use an Olympus OMD-EM5, flicking between the M.ZUIKO 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ lens and my beloved M.ZUIKO Premium 45mm F1.8 lens.
