Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

The Little Dragon


Still use the first camera once in a while, its a small compact camera (Canon Powershot 470). Really great for macro photography. So probably should get a macro lens to have a bit of fun πŸ™‚ As the temperature is rising, soon insects will start to flourish again. And that means that the dragons will also show up again. These images were shot in the garden, and the dragonfly you see is a Common Darter. Played a bit with colors and black and white for this result





Frost and a new lens


Frosty Hydrangea Frosty Hydrangea2

Thanks to my parents i now have a new lens in my collection. I don’t know yet which lens it is. It is an analog lens which doesn’t exactly fit to the Canon Eos 400D. But it is a bit smaller, so i can still use it. i just put it in front of the mirror and make images. It has a macro function which im already in love with after just a few shots! Bokehlicious and such sharpness!

So now im trying to find out if there is an extension or anything which i can use to connect this lens to the Canon. So far no luck, but im sure there is something out there. And otherwise i’ll just use my own little way. Bit unhandy, but at least i can use the lens πŸ™‚

Like to share these 2 images i made today of frost on the Hydrangea. Beautiful sight with the light touching parts of the leaves covered in frost.
