Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Garden Ramble

It has been a while since I used my Sony DT 50mm F1.8 lens. Several weeks ago I took it for a ramble around our garden with the intention of experimenting with the F1.8 setting only so find out how shallow the depth of field was.  Here are some of the results.

White African Daisy

Potato Flower

Thyme

Seed Heads

Love-in-a-Mist

Love-in-a-Mist 2

Lavender

Bougainvillea

Geranium

    Nice work – it is fun to shoot macro. You start to see things a bit differently and notice how many little things there are to photograph all around you. Your garden is a great subject. Looking forward to seeing some more.

    • Thanks David. The “nifty fifty” is fun and needs a lot more exercise!
