A funny set this time round - Smiler has been pretty poorly and I haven't left the house since last weekend, which is reflected in this collection of mono shots of the garden.  I've been playing with focus and contrast, and it's interesting how a few changes can turn what would otherwise have been a pretty but ordinary blossom in a bright springtime photo into a delicate but moody image.

Linking with Truly Madly Kids #iotw (Image of the Week) I guess I'd have to say my personal favourite is Thursday's dandelion clock.  I used manual focus (go me!) to get the seed umbrella tines as clearly defined as I could - it reminds me a bit of a spiderweb, with all those delicate interlacing strokes.

    1. Thank you. My aim next week is to get out of the house so who knows what I'll end up with shots of! I'm lucky really to have a garden with enough variety for the times when I can't get out and about.

  2. You really have to push the creativity when you have limited opportunities, love the first one, every hair is standing out on that succulent.

  3. Your photos are always a pleasure to look at - you turn the everyday into something interesting. I agree - the dandelion is the most stunning. Thank you for linking up too #iotw
