Bloomin' Spring blooms . . . II

I’m always conscious – or try to be – of not ‘flooding’ the image feed with ‘same-same’ images. I mean, images of flowers and more flowers (?) can become … erm, boring? So, collectively, in a single entry then, just a few more Spring blooms from my backyard . . . a few you might’ve seen before . . . oh and a kitty cameo or two ;-)

Canon 50D, 100mm f2.8 macro
Spring, October 2012, Melbourne
RAW, CS5 post-ed, tweaked with Nik filters various:
– infra red, bleach bypass, Silver Effex

Crabapple . . .

. . . and then the fight started . . . not really ;-)
Mostly, Gucci and Floppy are each other’s good company :-)

The Nose have it . . . duo-toned green eyed Gucci cat, distracted by – something . . .

With it’s web done (bottom left), a spider waits . . . the flower is just 2cms long . . .

Ubiquitous . . .

Grooming session . . . he won’t groom Gucci, but loves the short hair on my fella’s head ;-)

    Flowers and Kittens what has become of one of my favorite street photographers.

    Ah I posted a couple of puppy photos today myself lol. We are becoming soft and mushy lol

  • Hehe, Andrew I’m a bit ‘starved’ for a proper hours long street walk lately ;-) and as the camera barely gets a rest, I’m flapp’n about in the garden … take heart, starting to get ‘cabin fever’ and a bit bored with it (garden) though ;-))

    no subject matter should ever be totally “off limits”. and none of these are the “same-same” images. beautiful works, each

  • Michael, thank you for your kindness :-D Flowers are always beautiful and intriguing with their shapes and form, but they don’t “pull faces” or do silly (entertaining) things like a ‘street candid’ might ;-) That’s kinda what I meant by same-same – there’s only a limited number of angles/shots for flossies ;-) … won’t stop me snapping them though :-)))

    Flowers are not usually my “thing” as you know, but the garden is full of them at the moment! :-D

    I’m with Berns, the top one is delicious, and a lovely collection all round too. Gucci is a real stunner also!

  • Thank you very much, Georgie :-D … yep, the slight tweak with Nik (Silver Effex, I think?) on the rose worked out well, very happy with it also. And yeah, the camera certainly does love Gucci :-D
