My Photo

My home is in Chamberlains, CBS, Newfoundland: a place close enough to sea so that I can go there to watch the glorious sunsets over the bay, and the other infinite variety of sights and sounds that are forever changing, yet forever the same. I'm not as young as I used to be and don't get around much any more, but I've had many wonderful hours of enjoyment with my Yasihca 44 TLR and trusty old OM-2. I've always enjoyed photographing wild flowers, particularly the smaller ones, many of which , albeit mostly overlooked and dismissed as weeds, are exquisitely beautiful. Digital photography, complete with all the magic of its own portable darkroom, has brought a new dimension to the hobby. My OM-2 is retired now, but it is such a beautiful instrument, such a joy to hold and behold, that I don't think I will ever want to part with it. My digital, used mostly, is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30. Its 35-420 mm Leica zoom lens can really reach out for those hard to reach shots. My photographs are strictly amateurish, but hopefully some have succeeded in capturing something of the moment that inspired them.

One of the tiniest and prettiest of our wild flowers.

Hi LLoyd, I love your flower images and share you enjoyment of the smaller ones - Pearly everlasting for example and this Sandwort. Your technique of using a close-up inset works very well indeed.
Do you make the inset the hard way in Photoshop or do you have a quick and easy way to do it?
I've been enjoying your older images too - good stuff, I'll be back.

Thanks for the compliment. Nothing fancy in my technique. I simply take an overall shot, and then a close-up of some portion of it.
