Just a simple shot of the evening sunlight coming in the window and falling upon a vase of roses.
Hannah bought a bunch of daffodils so I decided to take a time-lapse of them opening up. Bonus points if you spot my two cats jumping up on the table! Bad kitties. The first frame was taken at 5am on the first day and the last frame was taken at 7pm on the second day, withContinue reading “Daffodil time lapse”
As I wrote recently on my blog, I bought a Tamron 90mm macro lens. Up until today, I’d only published a boring photo of a piece of Velcro. But over the last few days I’ve taken a few photos with it, and here are the results. This is a screw. Bonus points to anyone whoContinue reading “Some macros”
Sorry, I’m useless at names of flowers. But these are pretty, and I like the depth of field from my new lens 🙂

I took these photos with a 35-70mm lens, using an additional macro lens. A pink lily Cotton reels A crystal of aragonite Unfortunately the developing lab treated my negatives pretty badly, as I wrote about on my blog earlier today. Here’s a close-up of some of the scratches on the second aragonite photo, which IContinue reading “Some 35mm macro shots”
