Purple and Orange

There have been a lot of changes since my last post with photos of flowers and plants in my garden.

The Spanish Bluebells flowered.

For the first time since we moved here – almost two years ago – our Photinia × fraseri ‘Red Robin’ flowered too.

The Helios-44M’s bokeh is perfect for shooting flowers and plants, and I can’t seem to get enough of it.

Lunch time with the Helios-44m

I’m pretty pleased by the results of the Helios-44M, and by the fact that I can easily bring the camera to work without carrying too much weight.

Today I went for a quick stroll around the Science Park in Cambridge, found out there’s more than one pond and took some pictures.

Having an ongoing photo project is good, as it helps seeing things around us with a different perspective, noticing details usually overlooked in our day-to-day life.

My ongoing project is about the changes in nature and sky on my way to work with my bicycle. It began in July 2016, around the time I started a new job in Cambridge.

Waiting for the season change

It’s been a while since the last time I posted something, or went out to take some pictures.

Despite the chill and the rain, everything seems to be getting ready for the season change, and so am I.
