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. Β Β 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.

Germini (a little Gerbera)

IfΒ 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.

    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.

      Haha! I’m just looking at a withering thing in front of me! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ‘

      That’s more than true!! Actually I am not a pink person at all, but I’ll take any flowers sent to me.

      1. restlessjo says:

        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.

    These are lovely, Jude

  3. You did very well receiving that gorgeous arrangement of flowers. The pink is so vibrant.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I don’t usually get flowers, but this was a thank you from the son who was ill last year. I’m sure it’ll be back to usual next year!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Haha… we’ll see πŸ™‚
