A retrospective...part lll

This is the third entry of five in which I am sharing with you the portfolios I entered into a contest held by an international photography magazine. (Colour, a sister publication to Black & White)

I mentioned in the last couple of posts that I badly need to take my camera in for a good cleaning but the thought of not having it for 4 to 6 weeks does not sit to well with me. It has also been a long time since I have managed to find time to get out and take any photos. On Easter morning I was sitting at the table, the window was open, it was raining, and the birds were singing like there was no tomorrow. On impulse, I grabbed the camera, dirty or not, and headed to the greenhouse to snap a few photos.

Therefore my friends, I will soon have some new photos to share. I am currently editing them, removing the dust spots, and once I have finished the retrospective will post some new ones. So bare with me....

This portfolio was from my Bokeh series, 2011

A retrospective...part ll

There is a blackbird singing(?) outside my window, and it is overcast but mild. Which when all put together makes me want to grab my camera and go for a hike...But due to the camera situation I mentioned in my previous post, this sadly is not going to happen.

So you, and I will have to make due with another retrospective of previous shots. As mentioned I entered five portfolios into a competition and I am sharing with you each of them one by one. My last post featured portfolio one and today I will share the second.

Since today also happens to be Easter Sunday, I will share the set that is most cheery, and spring like. It features shots from early this year taken at Allan Gardens. (In the greenhouse)....

Happy Easter!
