Pink isn’t just a colour, it’s an attitude.
– Miley Cyrus
I have some creeping roses outside my front window and I love to photograph them. I’ve left them alone for quite a few weeks as it’s been a bit cold, but I recently went out for a challenge to get some macro shots.
I took this shot with my Olympus OMD EM5 with the 60mm macro lens (120mm equivalent). It was a lovely sunny day, so at ISO200, I could use a very fast shutter speed (1/640th sec) and a mid aperture size (f/7.1) which allowed me to get most of the flower in focus.
My friend Nalinki at Angles and Views has started #flowersoverflowers where we can share our favourite blossoms of the week and I thought this one fits in nicely. It’s in my garden, it’s my favouritest of favourite colours and I think it’s so pretty.
Also for Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic – come and see the wonderful shots that the regulars have taken.
Finally, I’m including a quote from Miley Cyrus (gasp, such a great philosopher, haha). Thank you to Swagata from Through My Eyes for nominating me for the 3 Day, 3 Quote Challenge. I wouldn’t normally consider Miley but this one fits with my photo and my attitude. I’d like to nominate my lovely friend Lucile to join me in this challenge. A quote a day for three days and nominate someone new each day. Lucile – are you up to the challenge?!
