And I could never bring you flowers, And I could never turn you around

A collage of a colourful purple flower, taken with my new macro lens. Macro photography is a lot harder than I thought, it’s a learning curve, especially with focus.

Post title is taken from the song ‘Flowers’ from the album ‘Today’ by the under-rated band ‘Galaxie 500’.

      Thanks for the comments. I managed to pick up a Pentax 100mm f2.8 1:1 macro lens in a local store at a clearance price. It’s actually the first photography item I’ve bough first hand in years! I plan to shoot the non-standard macro photography but flowers are very good to photograph- colourful, don’t move and some lovely details….
