Day #680

Day #680 Title: Late Bloomer
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: Another dull grey day. Didn’t feel like straying far from home for any pictures (I was busy doing boring jobs like filing) but I found the Fatsia japonica was in bloom out in the garden. Nice little flower, isn’t it?

Day #645 Title: Soft Green
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: Another damp and miserable day. On my way back from a meeting, I happened to spot the same patch of Oxalis which I had taken on Day #577. So I gave it a similar Orton treatment, but it’s still quite a contrast from the previous shot.

Day #625

Day #625 Title: Red Edges
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The weather improved today, as did my mood. This was taken during a visit to a client’s this afternoon. She is a herbalist, and always has interesting things growing in her garden.  This is a type of Heuchera, I think, although I’m not sure of the variety. I liked the strong colour at the edges of the leaf.

Day #577

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 30th July 2009

Day #577 Title: Soft Pink
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I was at a bit of a loss as to what to photograph today. I went into town for a meeting this morning but didn’t feel very inspired by anything I saw there. And I knew I wanted to get something in the can while the sun was shining. So in the end, I went with a tried and tested method and wandered around the garden until something took my fancy. Straight out of the camera this looked quite soft anyway, so I thought I would give it a more pronounced Orton treatment.

Day #524

Day #524Title: A Miserable Day
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: My cold has taken hold. The weather is rubbish. I’m feeling generally grotty. So I’m afraid this is probably the best you’re likely to get for today.

Day #519Title: Clematis Fluff
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: The neighbour’s Clematis has well and truly seeded now, and there are little fluff balls all over the grass below. I managed to find one or two still on the stems.

Day #491

Day #491Title: In The Garden
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: You will be pleased to know this was taken with my 24-105mm lens – yes, the one which got dropped on Saturday. I took it to a specialist camera repair centre today, who were able to remove the broken filter. The lens seems to have survived unscathed. In the afternoon, I wandered round my parents’ garden taking a few shots to check it out. Thankfully it’s just cost me the price of a new filter, and a couple of days’ angst. Phew.
