I took my D810 mounted with my LensBaby Composer Pro out for a walk looking for flowers in the neighborhood the other day. I put the Soft Focus Optic in the Composer along with the 16mm macro adapter; here’s a few images from that walk.
Arizona Sunflower at f/2- I love that blur!
a Rose f/4- I wanted to get a bit more in focus so stopped it down a stop.
It looks like my LensBaby will get along fine with the D810.
I’m off for a “ladies long week-end” with a good friend. We plan to hike in the mountains by a lake, and do a lot of photography. I hope the sky is clear so we can photograph the stars at least one night.
I hope you all have a lovely week-end. I’ll catch up when I return.
A little bit of this and that to share today. While developing images I discovered all the images I was selecting to work on had a theme; the color Yellow. Perhaps it’s because it has been quite nice, warm, and sunny here the last few days? I don’t know, but Yellow just feels good doesn’t it.
I took this image earlier in the year. Male Western Meadowlark
A Margarite Daisy blossom I think.

Protea from the Australian Garden in Santa Cruz, CA
I hope there’s some sunshine in your life today!

Spanish Lavender from my neighbor Maria’s yard. She has the best garden!
This is a hedge that we put in on both sides of our house for a little more privacy.
It’s been so many years ago that we put it in I can’t recall the name of it. It attracts the bees, and looks great when in bloom. It has red and green broad leaves and is ho-hum when not in bloom. 🙂
We just had our 26 yr old railroad tie retaining wall/planter box replaced with a cement stone looking wall which meant I bought new flowers to replace those that were let go or trampled on while the wall was being installed. These are some sort of cone Daisy. I need to ask Rick our contractor what he planted. I love these!
Calla Lily- I love this blossom, but have a really hard time photographing it and getting on film what I see in my head, but I adore this curve.

A Pink Gerbera from a bouquet of flowers #1 Grandson had Baby Girl buy for me a few days ago since I’ve been a bit under the weather the past 2 weeks. I had to break out my LensBaby to take a few images of the flowers.
Here he is with the bouquet at the store. Baby Girl said it was his idea and was totally floored.
He wished me to feel better the second the front door opened then ran to me with this huge bouquet. He’s so sweet, and wonderful!
I came down with a mild case of Shingles. I thank God it’s a mild case! I can imagine how horrific a bad case is now because it’s been pretty awful, but I’m a big baby. 🙂
I’m too young to have been offered the vaccine, but I’m going to get it when I’m over this; the Dr. said it can’t hurt.
I am getting better everyday, and hope to be right as rain soon.
I hope you all are having a lovely Sunday!
