A couple of weeks ago Here
I asked for ideas of things to photograph - and kazzy_cee
suggested some close-ups of flowers.
So, behind the cut are 9 pictures, that I have reduced in size, so as not to be too slow in loading.
Hope that you enjoyed them ... Some of the other pics will be up soon, as I want to try and get most of the projects done before I head off to Greece next Wednesday (with Mum and Dad).
Mum has just bought me a Nikon D80 ... a digital SLR. This was the reason I wanted a challnge, as I wanted to get back into taking "proper" pictures, rather than the snaps I always take loads of!!
The range of colours is stunning ... as is the various textures.
The last one, I don't know the name of, but is a cactus, that you water in the plant - the flower is as hard and spiky as the actual plant.
There are fuscia, red-hot poker, dandelion (which is a weed, here !) as well.
Sorry - Mum's the one with the green fingers!
To me it was just to get a range of colours and textures.
