Nearly missed it

Oops! Got caught up in putting together a proposal for a family trip to Wellington. I knew the place had a lot of things to do, I just didn’t realise how much. Love in a Mist. Always been fascinated by this flower, and how the soft spiky parts (called bracts apparently) remind me of fractals.

Daily Photo

I seem skilled at finding spiders sitting inside the things I decide to take a photo of. This is the first photo I’ve taken this year that I’ve cropped before putting up. The depth to which my camera can focus is more than a lot of other cameras of the same calibre and I like […]

Daily Photo – Day ???

I wanted to capture the amazing texture of the lily, the transparency of the petals, and somehow give an impression of the amazing scent that is filling the room. Well, I managed the first one in my not so humble opinion. Having to use the flash at this late hour of the evening meant I […]

Project 365 – Day 5

I decided today that Monarch Butterflies are the most fussy insects I’ve ever met. This one wouldn’t sit still long enough for me to get more than a couple of fleeting shots. No part of the swan plants we have growing was good enough for her to lay any eggs. On the upside, I loved […]

Project 365 – Day 2

If you look closely you can see there’s a spider hanging out in the centre of the dandelion clock. Didn’t discover this til I was choosing photos.

First Day of Project 365

As part of my 101 in 1001, I’m attempting to do Project 365 again. So without further ado, here is one of the photos I snapped earlier today. I love how well the hairs on the tomatoes came through – you can almost smell the chemical released when you touch the plant.
