I have usually had a camera in my hands since I received my first one (a humble box brownie) on my 13th birthday. Over the years as technology advanced I moved to instamatics, then a 35mm film, then to digital, finally aquiring my first DSLR, a Canon 450D last year and just recently upgrading to a Canon 7D It was love at first click… I am now rediscovering the beauty of our Great Southern Land in my quest to photograph each week…

    A lovely shot. The busy background, far from distracting, actually harmonises with the shape of the flower!
