Day 5: Own Garden.

IMG_3172This is taking garden-creeping to the next level. Taken at an allotment centre, with 10s of gardens next to each other and lots of flowers/plants to photograph. I don’t have all that many photos to show though. It was quite rainy hence the water droplets but during editing I managed to figure out how to process the photo to look realistically like and overcast evening – warm rather than grey/blue (tutorial will be posted in a couple of days).

Day 4: Dog Rose.

IMG_4980I was surprised to learn that this is a type of rose. I guess this is a wild species and the flower-shop roses we see today used to look something like this, before they were bred to look… well, nicer.

Like in many of my macro shots, I like a blurry foreground as well as background. It gives some position to the subject.
