I took my camera out yesterday when I walked Gidget but I didn’t take many photos unfortunately. However, I did happen about this kitten – it was quite a surprise because he was at eye-level, in a garden that was up a short flight of stairs above the pavement.

I was originally drawn to the little blue flowers, but the kitten stole the show.



But of course, I did manage to get some shots of the flowers as well. He was fascinated by my camera, seemed to be mesmerised but also a little afraid. He held his ground though, and watch me shoot the flowers.

And well, it just wouldn’t be me, if I didn’t get in super close and change up the editing a little, now would it? I was happy to see that I can still get a pretty sharp shot, even with a stupid torn up shoulder!

I only took one lens with me and this time is was my 30mm macro lens (60mm equivalent) – much smaller and lighter than the 60, but not as good in my opinion – I reviewed the two of them here.


So this is my RegularRandom for this week. Don’t forget the rules!

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Looking forward to seeing your RegularRandom shots too!

  1. He’s definitely a sweetie, but I also like the blue daisies which look like Felicia or Kingfisher daisies if you want to know. Which you probably don’t. I had some in my Cape Town garden and love the colour. Take it easy with that shoulder now. No putting stress on it!!

    1. Thank you!! They are pretty with their intricate yellow centres aren’t they. Yes I did want to know! Thank you! I’ve had so many offers of help with the shoulder issue so I shouldn’t ever have to stress it thankfully 😊

    1. Thank you! I got some decent painkillers from the doctor but there’s nothing they can do besides surgery it seems. So now I just have to wait until I can get it done. A few more weeks now.


        1. Yes editing for an extended time can get painful but I try to just spend no more than 30 mins at a time. The new painkillers are helpful. I do have 22 “The Flowers of Brunswick East” posts scheduled, one every second day. It’s just the days in between that I work on separately. Xx


I'd love to hear from you!
