Five Minutes with my Mother’s Day Bouquet

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.

Choose a scene or an object and keep fixed on that object, and shoot for just five minutes.   You can move around the object or scene but try not to interfere with it. See what happens in that five minutes, what changes, how the light changes, what comes into the frame or leaves the frame, or what other parts of the object you can focus on or use to your advantage.

All photos were taken using my Olympus OM-D E-10 camera and Macro 60mm or 40-150mm lens.

Lisianthus
Germini (a little Gerbera)

If you would like to join in then please visit DJ’s site where you will find more information and ideas about the challenge. I’m sure she will enjoy this “Grand Pink Sorbet” of flowers as PINK is her favourite colour.

  1. Gorgeous! I’m a Stargazer lily fan πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And roses…. πŸ™‚ And when they’re nearly done for you can hand them on to Sue and she’ll get another 3 weeks of photos out of them.

      • Me too! πŸ™‚ I currently have some yellow wizened roses and peach carnations at one end of the hearth and some Sue style tulips (purple and white πŸ™‚ ) at the other. Aldi’s best!

        • I need to pop up to the farm shop and buy some lovely Cornish daffs. Just watching a couple of lambs gambolling in the field at the moment. So cute.

  2. Your photographs are just gorgeous! Today was my birthday and I received many special gifts and lovely sentiments, but no flowers! I think I will just enjoy yours, Jude. So lovely!
