Back in late September when it was still too hot to be outside, I was practicing my macro shots. Brett had brought home several bunches of flowers for my birthday so I pulled out my macro lens and played around in the kitchen. I’m not really a creative person so I tend to shoot the same things over and over again.
I sprayed some of the flowers with water to try and do something with droplets but I feel like they still look the same every time I do this.
It’s hard for me to get the color right on red roses. I usually get the color blown out. After a week the roses started to get some dark edges and I thought this gave it an edgy look. I couldn’t decode whether I liked them with the water or not so I posted both.

We have hibiscus bushes growing on the side of our house but I rarely bring them inside. I need to do that more often. They only last a day though.
Up close with some new shells. Our glass stove top gives off a nice reflection.
Turning the lens on my own birds. Buddy on top (he’s 27 years old) and Harley in the bottom 2 (he’s 5). Harley used to be terrified of the camera so I would only take pictures of Buddy up close but now he sings for it.
Lots of pretty things at Bok Tower Gardens in April.
