Adventure before dementia
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).

Wow! Those flowers are gorgeous. What kind of camera do you have?

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!!

Ooh the colours are so pretty :)

Thanks - it is amazing how much variety there is, once you start looking.

Lovely! The colors are so crisp and clear.

Thank you - the range of the colours is stunning as well.

Very pretty! I love the bee and the fuchsias have come out really well.

Thanks - I loved the pic of the bee, I will admit ... lucky it moved the right way as I was standing there!

Those are gorgeous! So sharp and clear!

Thanks - I enjoyed the challenge ... and such a range of colour and texture.

Awe, pretty :) Some I don't recognize but they are impressive.

Can't help you with all the names ... Sorry! I just saw them around Mums house and garden and took the pics ... LOL.

The range of colours is stunning ... as is the various textures.

They are wonderful . I love the second one which came out so bright .

Thank you - it was a good challenge. I enjoyed seeing the range of colours.

Those are lovely - you can tell it is a really good camera. And a realy good photographer, of course.

I had fun - and such a range of colour and texture to explore.

Beautiful pictures, beautiful flowers, I specially love the pic of the orchid, they are my favorites! :) Can I ask, do you know the name of the flowers? Some of them you don't find around here, the last two for example.

The last but one is a Hoya - very perfumed and a climber.
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.

Very pretty - I love the dandelion clock - and you've got nice sharp close ups even without a macro setting.
29th-Aug-2008 09:17 pm (UTC)
Thanks - couldn't resist the dandelion - both the clocks and the flowers are beautiful, aren't they?

Flowers are the unique gift of nature to us. The pics available here of flower are very beautiful.
