It feels a strange time of year, spring has gone but summer hasn’t yet landed.
Like a pause between the seasons.
I’m trying to photograph gardens as part of my Year Of Unconventional Lenses but the daffodils have died, the tulips are past their best and the summer blooms haven’t started yet.
Although the bluebells are lovely, the forget-me-nots are blooming and some of the early summer flowers are in bud. There’s always something worth shooting in a garden, sometimes you just need to look a little harder….
(Photographed with various lenses, the Helios 44-2, the Lensbaby and the lovely Twist 60 and it was the first outing of an old 50mm Pentacon lens (stuck wide open at 1.8) with a 2x Cherry Phago converter.)
