I never thought I would take pictures of reflections of Radox bottles, numbers on lamp posts, reflections on ponds or the ice on the car window when the car frosted up, red mould on cheese spread, hordes of midges or shadows on the living room wall.
Sadly I am now finding out the limitations of my camera, it does not fire quick enough, half my subjects have moved/flown away or whatever before my camera focuses and fires. It does not have a macro mode therefore I cannot get close ups of small creatures and other shots. I never ever thought when I started this project that I would be saying this six months down the line - I am going to have to find a way to afford a better camera, one as simple to use but with better functions.
Todays picture is of what may seem to you a plain ordinary boring cactus, but this cactus is about fifth generation removed from one that youngest daughter bought for her dad.It was a tiny wee thing in a small petit filous sized pot at a Christmas Fair when she was eight years old, she is now twenty three. It has grown and divided many times, and we currently have three of them on the bedroom windowsill. Every year it produces flowers, and if we get any then I will photograph it again and put it up.
|and it is in keeping with my nature theme|
