Sometimes you just want to get closer

I probably should be writing about Teddy. I’ve been working with him for a while and he’s an interesting dog. But I don’t have the energy at the moment. Plus, I think we may be on the cusp of a significant accomplishment. I hope. So more to come on this boy.


I did, however, feel the garden beckoning late this afternoon. I have been using one lens a lot lately and felt an urge to get closer to the subject so I pulled out the macro.

There were some new roses to shoot.

And some irises. The iris was one of my Mom’s favorite flowers so I always included them in her bouquets. I like them too.

Plus some others whose names I have forgotten.

I benefit greatly from living close to Homeward Bound. This allows me to shoot in the garden in the late afternoon/evening when the light is better. Today I was blessed with perfect light.

    Stunning Iris shots. It looks like you got the pictures in before the rain. “April showers” will bring more “May flowers” and opportunities for you to share with us your wonderful pictures.
