Getting closer

I have had one SLR camera or the other since 2005. Despite flowers being one of my favourite subjects, I had never shot them through a macro lens. That changed today with the purchase of the 30mm f/3.5 Sony macro.

The summer so far has been cooler than the year before. And while that’s still too warm for the tulips, plenty of other flowers are still around:

I had been eyeing a cluster of Foxgloves potted outside a house on the way to our neighbourhood grocery shop. I was about a week too late. Most of them had wilted away when I went to click them today. I am counting down to the spring next year already!
