Photos From The Garden

I haven't been out with my camera for a while. I haven't felt like it to be honest.
I wish I was stuck still in January where my creative juices were flowing like crazy and I was so happy but times have been a bit tough (hectic!) with wedding plans and remembering all sorts of life's other essentials I've just had my creativity stunted.

I often feel a bit funny going out with my camera espicaially my bigger one. I'm still getting used to people looking at you as if you're a bit nuts when you whip a camera out to photo a building, a bird, a flower, the sky whatever has caught the eye but i'm sure it's something i'll learn not to give two hoots about.

Today though I ventured out into my back garden, camera at the ready to see if there was anything out there I could shoot. What do you know? There was! Yesterday a large purple towel of mine had blown down onto my flower patch and after lifting it up the period of one nights damp and dark had given way to a few rather odd looking mushrooms. Before removing for safty purposes I had to grab a few shots. After the mushrooms you couldn't stop me! Enjoy...

I saw my Sweet Williams looking worse for wear but this seems okay. I did find a rather tiny slug having a nibble so had to send him on his way! I love catching water on plants and I love this shot because of the different shades of green.

I like how the edges have been caught here. I don't really know what it is but I really like this shot.

On my fence there are few of these rusty looking objects. I love the pattern that has formed over time with the rusting.

Using a 'Super Macro' mode I managed to capture such detail in the keyhole on my back door. I am really pleased with this photo.

Finally I saw a redundant looking plant pot and decided I rather liked it. My camera did too.
