There’s an apartment building on the corner here which styles itself “the White House,” I’m not sure why. Every year I promise myself I’m not going to post pretty pictures of flowers – not my thing – and every year, as we emerge from the slough of Winter I demur, especially following this plague year. These were in the planter in front of the White House.
I added a Litra on the inverted blue glass from 2 posts ago to illuminate through the leaves and deal with the backlighting from the window.
Not too many good shots this past weekend, so it’s back to the archives of December 2003 we go: Australian summer, New York winter.
A few more flowers from the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, Australia that I missed on my last pass.
Click any image to see them all enlarged (on laptop or PC – doesn’t seem to work on tablet or phone).
In December of 2003 I took a business trip to Sydney, Australia for a couple of weeks. What a city! I think I could live there quite happily. Naturally, I brought along the 5 MP Dimage A-1 that I was still shooting jpegs with. Click any picture to see them all bigger.
Both images shot fairly close at 200mm (300mm equivalent).
Still shooting with the telephoto at 200 mm (300 e) and getting some interesting painterly effects.
