Macro Flowers, October 7, 2011

If you've been following my blog posts on macro flowers you will know that I often take photos as I go on short walks in my neighbourhood.  I don't have a big garden and I don't seem to have a green thumb either. It's probably because I spend so little time cultivating what I plant.  Some day I hope to take up gardening a little more seriously.  In the meantime, I'm fortunate that I live in a city of avid gardeners and I don't have to go far to enjoy flowering plants.

In one of my walks, I took these photos of the delightful little bush with small, white flowers. I was enthralled by the centre of the flower which if you examine it closely looks a lot like the daisies I featured in this post.


My hand wasn't steady enough for the first macro shot.

This shot is a little better. At least you can make out the intricate pattern. Isn't it lovely?

  1. I have the same shaky hand problem. I need one of those really short tripods. The end result is amazing. The flower looks quite different close-up.

  3. Roan, I think we all have the same problem, or most of us anyway. Though your macros are always lovely. I took these photos when I first started to submit to macro flowers. I think I've gotten better since then ;-)

  5. The little flower is lovely. I take most of my shots in other people's gardens too, so I have flowers for all seasons.

  8. Maia, I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I'm afraid I may not have taken enough photos to last through the winter...I took lots of photos,but perhaps not enough macros. I'll see if I can get more tomorrow.
