Yesterday I finally met another blogger, our own Dianne of
Adelaide Botanical Gardens, shared a quick baguette and off to
the Lotus Pond for a shooting frenzy. Dianne is thinking of
upgrading to an SLR so we just used my Canon so she could get
a feel for it and see the difference between it and her present
point and shoot.
Here are a few I snapped in action as we had quite a blowy day.
The wonder of the Lotus blowing in the wind with it's last flowers
still perfect but showing seed pods in various stages of ripeness
as proof of the glory that graced the gardens during the last few
The flower and the pod embracing . . .
and catch-as-catch-can, as the wind tilted the flower towards
me for a millisecond.
We spent a wonderful day together, getting to know each other
and wildly photographing and talking 'shop'.
Later in the day we shared an even greater wonder but that is for another day.
Sorry I am late posting but I was absolutely bushed after such an intensive shoot
and 3 hours of driving.
