Water abstract ~


A few days ago I said I was finished posting photos from my trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens. At the time I thought that was true, but I was mistaken. Here’s one last photo of water reflections. I like it better than most of the others I posted. I intensified the colors, but not dramatically.

Pond eddy ~


Taken at the Missouri Botanical Garden’s 2017 orchid show. Olympus OM-D EM10 II with 30 mm macro lens (60 equivalent). I recently acquired this 4:3 mirror-less camera (which somehow stands up under the burden of that absurd series of letters and numbers), and so far I absolutely love it. It’s lightweight and small, which is a boon for my tendinitis-weakened wrists, but it seems to perform as well as my Pentax K-50. Best of all, you can shoot just by touching the LCD screen where you want the sharpest focus to be. No, Olympus didn’t pay me to praise this camera. What a shame! Next up: Orchids! Lots of ’em.
