I have been taking flower shots for quite a while now, but only understood yesterday while having fun at it once again, the influence the blogging world has on my results which I think has definitely improved since the beginning of my blog.
This time I decided to play it sometimes sophisticated with black background and others preserved its pure lines in the classical settings of daylight.
I hope you’ll enjoy this collection 🙂

Floating in a Fuchsia world

Today, I want to share this exquisite Fuchsia rose that was given to me when I had accidentally dressed the table with what do you know… yes, a Fuchsia tablecloth.
It gave me the perfect background.
Following for nearly two years very talented photographers on WordPress gave me the right angles for perfect shots.
I work with what I consider a basic camera which is a Canon digital IXUS 95 IS but following the advice of a blogger I exploited to a maximum its potential & come up with quite good results but,

I’ll let you judge for yourselves these close-ups in the hope that it’ll greet pleasantly your eyes 🙂

We are lucky enough to have succeeded in keeping this most exotic plant alive in our home for quite a few years 🙂
I’ll include the photos of its maturation.
I hope you like it, have a good weekend!

As small as a buttonhole…

As I sat down on a bench in front of a lake bordered by trees, a plucked daisy
laying on the grass drew my attention and while the others went on having
their fun I picked it up & had mine experimenting for thirty whole
minutes the art of close-up photography. This flower as big as a buttonhole
pleasantly surprised me with its outcome 🙂
I have to explain that my camera is very basic so I’m always in awe at
how its limits can be stretched…

I had a hard time selecting, erased about five & a whole load on premises & ended with the grand collection
of seven I just could not part with but most importantly is which one do YOU like?
