I didn't get much photography done while I was away for a few days there. So as you can imagine, I was experiencing withdrawal symptoms and so had to get some shots today. It was overcast, late in the day, and i didn't have the car, so i decided just to go exploring in my back garden.
I've been doing quite a bit of landscape photography recently where beautiful scenes are usually obvious to spot. So i thought it would be a nice change to try and find the extra in the ordinary things. It's not to everyone's taste but i usually find the results pretty interesting.
I'm also not a big fan of flower photography, so i always find that a challenge when giving it a try. I saw a post on dpreview recently where the poster talked about 'designing the background'. So in some of these shots i was concentrating as much on the background as the plant itself.
It was a good hour i spent in the garden and a few more on PP, so it helped eleviate the boredom of a rather slow day. I liked the way the images came out and thought they would look good in a montage.
The individual photos can be found here.
