Bee & Artichoke

This is the one of my latest photos and the first to appear in the new ‘Featured¬† Post’ section of my blog, a place I will use to showcase my most recent image. I’m in the process of streamlining my blog, including starting a new policy of ‘one post, one picture’, so it may be a bit messy while I re-edit some of my older posts.


This is just a quick post to share one of the flower shots I have taken recently. I don’t know what type of flower this is exactly, but I think it’s some sort of daisy. If anyone can expand on ‘some sort of daisy,’ that information would be greatly appreciated.

Last weekend I decided to try something out of my comfort zone and attempted some street photography. The results weren’t great though, but I may I post some of the better photos on here when I’m in a more self-abasing mood. Today is not that day though, so it’s back to tightly framed macro shots for now. This is a reent photo I have taken using only natural light. You can see a black and white version of this shot, along with the other two photos in the series, on my Flickr.

Here are a few photos from the afternoon I spent at a local park. These are the first photos I’ve taken where I’ve really put my macro lens to use, which reminds me that I should use it more often because I really enjoy taking my time over these close-up shots. It also reminds me that I should make a post of my (small) collection of gear sometime. I didn’t have my tripod with me on this occasion so it was tricky taking these shots freestanding. I set my camera to continuous shooting mode and luckily a few of the frames came out in focus.
