Day #625

Day #625 Title: Red Edges
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The weather improved today, as did my mood. This was taken during a visit to a client’s this afternoon. She is a herbalist, and always has interesting things growing in her garden.  This is a type of Heuchera, I think, although I’m not sure of the variety. I liked the strong colour at the edges of the leaf.

Day #577 Title: Soft Pink
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I was at a bit of a loss as to what to photograph today. I went into town for a meeting this morning but didn’t feel very inspired by anything I saw there. And I knew I wanted to get something in the can while the sun was shining. So in the end, I went with a tried and tested method and wandered around the garden until something took my fancy. Straight out of the camera this looked quite soft anyway, so I thought I would give it a more pronounced Orton treatment.

Day #491Title: In The Garden
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: You will be pleased to know this was taken with my 24-105mm lens – yes, the one which got dropped on Saturday. I took it to a specialist camera repair centre today, who were able to remove the broken filter. The lens seems to have survived unscathed. In the afternoon, I wandered round my parents’ garden taking a few shots to check it out. Thankfully it’s just cost me the price of a new filter, and a couple of days’ angst. Phew.
