Just walking the dogs....

I spotted this little scene the other day-and after some cropping to concentrate just on the legs I realised it reminded me of the work of Elliot Irwitt, who liked to capture just the legs of people and dogs.

London Pride!

A close up of a popular plant growing in many gardens, known as London Pride, showing a single flower. The plant is a kind of cultivated Saxifrage with small flowers which from afar have a whispy look. Its only up close we see the details!
I used the new flashgun through a piece of polystyrene with a black tshirt as background, camera on manual so no light reached the shirt.

Chasing a Weevil

This tiny chap was spotted climbing amongst some low nettles, and I had to get on my knees with my macro lens. Took a few attempts to get one decent shot but it was worth it in the end!

...and then there was light....

New flashgun arrives, a Canon 270 EX, with, surprisingly for such a small unit, bounce and zoom!
