Two Of A Kind #3

Two red Daylilies on the South Bruce Peninsula in the summer. Smaller and more delicate than the orange Daylily that is so popular.

One of my photos from the summer when I was using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants.

This is my day 22 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.

Portrait of an Orange Daylily

This is my day 25 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

An Orange Daylily photographed with a fast portrait lens to give a different perspective with very shallow depth of field on the flower.

Macro Monday

Red Daylily

Macro Monday this week is more of a close-up Monday.

I spotted this red Daylily on a walk yesterday morning. A neighbour has lots of Orange Daylilies growing along the road. This year there are also variegated yellow one’s and this small red one.





Another walk, another lens test.

I managed to get out for a proper walk with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens attached to the camera recently. The first test was a quick walk around the yard when I had a couple of minutes.

Second impressions are that it’s an interesting lens, I can see it spending a lot of time on the camera. I still think it needs a lens hood so that’s something that needs sorting out before the next test.

A Daylily near the start of the walk. Shot wide open the lens produces some interesting background blur in the leaves behind the flower.

Testing the 7artisans 35mm lens.
