How Many Ways CAN You Shoot A Dandelion?

I am sure there are a million ways to photograph a dandelion. Here are some of the others I took.

I loved the softness of this photo. It was taken to look like the inside of a soft, feather pillow.

I liked the flatness of this photo. It reminded me of a tiled or brick wall with a repeated pattern.

Macro Month: Day 25

These beautifully colourful flowers are Gazanias. They are native to Southern Africa, but grow like weeds on the sides of the roads in country South Australia. I must say that if we must have weeds, I am glad they are so colourful. They make the roadsides beautiful! I got a bit carried away with photographs and I couldn’t pick just one (or two, or three) so here are a lot of photos of Gazanias!

 

Macro Month: Day 19

 

 

Today’s macro shots are of things that provide little or no interest normally. The first is the very tiny flower of a weed that was growing in my garden. Its is one of those trailing weeds that are tiny, but get into everything. The second is a photo of the leaves on one of my petunias. I am not a huge fan of petunias. The flowers are floppy and never seem to last long and I think they are even less attractive without flowers. When I took the photo I was happy to find a point of interest. They are incredibly HAIRY! I can appreciate them for that. What’s more I am sure that the hairs have some function that I would find fascinating if I knew it. Whether it is related to water or bugs, I have no idea and if I ever find a moment I will Google it, but I have no time now, I have Kindergym to go to and photos to take, edit and upload. Petunia hair functions come below those on my list of priorities so they will have to wait.
