Subdued Light, Rabbit on the Line and Old Telephone Box

22 May

1   The sun/warmth didn’t last beyond a day but that did mean a beautiful subdued light for some flower photos this morning. Thanks to fellow photography bloggers for the hints about avoiding sunlight, early or late giving better shots, David Heilmann at  dhphotosite.wordpress.com and Russel Ray Photos.

Magnificent aquilega

French Lavender

2   It amuses me to see Max’s rabbit (a bit out of focus) on the line next door. There are two more indoors so that he is never without!

3   Driving into Truro through Greenbottom, I have been intrigued by this old phone box. Today the traffic was light enough to allow me to park and investigate. It’s a little library/book swap! What a fabulous use for the beautiful old box. Next time I’m there I shall take a few books to exchange at the exchange..

      Yes, that’s in my blog too! The one in Blackwater is used as a community notice board! 🙂

      Lovely to hear from you! Hope your coach can go between Truro and Redruth via Greenbottom. It’ll be on your left if you do, just after the village sign. 🙂

    Looks like Dr Who paid your town a visit 😀
    Though I think the blue colour suits his box better 😉
    Beautiful flowers as well – that aquilegia is stunning!

    I really like the second picture of the red flower! It is really beautiful 🙂 You should try to get some micro pictures of the flower! They would turn out great! Thanks for posting this, and keep up the good work!

        Basically what a micro photograph is is just a very up close and detailed picture of something. Unfortuantely it all depends on how good of a camera you have. that will determine how close you can get to the flower before the image becomes blurry. Try it out sometime. See how close you can get to a flower and then shoot it! 🙂 Goodluck!
