Day 7: End.

IMG_4191This is the last post in this macro week. This one isn’t from the campus, though it is from the same day. I took the longer way home, past the ‘nicer’ houses which actually had  front gardens. These flowers were close enough to the street that I wasn’t intruding too much.

On a different note, I need to start time-stamping my posts with dates of taking of each photo. This week’s posts have been from the 19th of May, which sort of gives you a clue to how large my backlog still is!  I’ve taken more macro shots since so I’m planning two more macro weeks in the future but since I (usually) limit myself to one post per day, this future may not be as near as I think.

Day 6: Xenophyte.

IMG_4173Coming to an end of the second Macro Week. Again, no idea what’s the name of this plant but it’s probably a xenophyte: thick leaves and waxy cuticle – A-Level biology is finally useful!
Another reason why I hate spiders: their webs make right eye-sores in photos sometimes.

Day 4: Not a Flower.

IMG_4124This one caught my eye because the sun picked it out of the rest of the bush. I like having a camera directly behind some leaves or branches when looking at the subject. They bend the light and give some fun abstractions of the bokeh. They make macro photos more interesting meaning I don’t have to use photoshop to spruce them up.
Just FYI, these are all from the same walk around Leicester campus in May (backlogs…), while waiting for a friend to finish his exam.
