Daisy

ukphotolady said on yesterday's blog that dandelion clocks brought back fond memories of school days and walking there. Daisies do the same for me; summer school days before big school, sitting on the grassy banks of the playing field, making daisy chains till the bell went.

All the usual compliments again, because you deserve them! I like the hue you have chosen, not pretending it's sepia, and very appropriate. All the delicious out-of-focus stuff around,(how did you get that at f10?!) and nice crop/place in frame.
pixelpixie: It's my new lens - a Nikkor 60mm micro (macro but Nikon say micro), the whole frame and a little breeze. My Mamiya lenses are pretty hot but this one is a cracker. It serves as a very accommodating substitute for the usual 50mm lens stuff too.
Lovely stuff! New lens: oh, oh, oh yes! moment smile
Good shot and lovely framing... everythings perfect here!!

This is a fantastic shot for your memories, PP, and for all the reasons stated above. The fact it's not in color makes it feel like a memory. I like that.

... and how long did you manage to make the chain before it broke? Quite a skill really, wasn't it? I'll bet you used buttercups to tell if somebody liked butter. wink

It's an absolute corker of a lens, you're going to have great fun using it.

Thanks for the link by the way, I'm going to have a very happy time browsing, but unfortunately 'they' tell me we need a new dishwasher sad

another wonderul flower shot. macro lens mmm jealous. what is the motion blur to the top left of the flower. is it a leaf with water on it.
pixelpixie: Thanks Neal, I've been trying to think, the grass was dry - I was sprawled all over it so it could only be the light reflecting off the smooth blades of grass and of course there was a breeze so the blades were moving, I remember having to wait for the wind to calm to click the shutter each time.
Wow, lovely tones here. softness and sharpness, all inbetween. Nicely done. smile
