DesleyJane – a lovely arty scientist now living in Melbourne – is also a wonderful photographer and a huge macro fan. She has a new challenge called “regularrandom“ for anyone to join in with which involves spending 5 minutes with the subject matter.
After the ‘Beast from the East’ departed I went to check on my spring flowers that had optimistically begun to flower. My Helleborus niger, commonly called Christmas rose or black hellebore, was in a sad state. Several stems were broken and bent and the flowers soddened. I rescued one flower and brought it inside to use as the subject for a photo shoot with my macro lens. Because the flower was in a poor state I decided to cut it in half and see what shapes that would yield. Below are my results.
All photos were taken using my Olympus OM-D E-10 camera and Macro 60mm lens.
