Exploring the world of creativity



Spring trees

Many of the trees around here are in bloom right now, a very beautiful sight. One of the many great things about this time of the year.

This is the SMC Pentax-A 35-70mm f4 again. I feel like I have a good grip of how this lens behaves now.

Almost summer

I think yesterday was our warmest day so far, a taste of what awaits us once  summer starts for real. We are in one of those transitional periods where the weather can´t be trusted and you are always dressed  wrong. But I still enjoy it, especially with all the flowers coming in.

We had a blue sky and lots of sunlight yesterday, which means the light was pretty harsh and a bit of a challenge. We don´t really get a whole lot of overcast days here during the summer, it´s  tends to be either sunny or raining.

Once again it´s flowers and other plants, photographed, with the SMC Pentax-A 35-70mm f4. I will do something different at some point, I promise. Maybe. Flowers is the subject I started with back in the day.


The city in bloom

I took a detour last after a visit to the library to look at all the flowers of late spring that are cropping up in the park. The central parts of my city have some really wonderful parks. A pretty big variety of flowers for this time of the year, compared to my hometown which is a good bit further north.

All of the photos you see here were captured using the SMC Pentax-A 35-70mm f4. It´s nice to have a some zoom lens when you take the camera for a walk for some extra flexibility, though this particular one does not go very wide. There is a value in working around limitations though.

There was not a lot of post processing done with these photos, just a few minor tweaks. It didn´t seem necessary to me. But what do you think, do they look alright? I am a bit uncertain about the colors. I have tried adjusting my screen to display them properly, but I really don´t know.

What is your favorite spring flower?

A spring walk

We do not have much in the way of nature or parks right around where I live. At least not compared to my hometown. I guess being close to the sea makes up for some of it. But there are some neat things to be discovered anyway, if you look around a bit.

These photos were all taken with the SMC Pentax-A 35-70mm f4 lens. It´s a pretty nice lens to bring along for walks, small and sharp. It also does closeups very well, and I do love my closeups.

Flowers of spring

 I looked through the photos on my laptop today, and found some stuff from a beautiful spring day 🙂 Just the thing to cheer you up on a rainy day like this.

Photography is really my biggest passion as far as art goes. I have been doing it for a long time. I´m sure it´s not the area where I produce the best results, but I still enjoy it very much. And lately I have started to take it more seriously. It´s gret to always have new things to explore. There are new things to learn every time I pick up the camera.

And I still don´t have my own camera 😛 The one used for this shot belong to my boyfriends father. I have high hopes for my graduation present, but you never know. Just one more week until i find out 😀
