Winter Outings – Fungi Hunt

So I mentioned in a post the other day that Hubby and I went on a fungi hunt with some photographer friends recently. It had rained the previous night, so the ground was extra muddy, but the clouds had stopped it from getting really cold. We had several days recently of 0C, but it was…

Fading flowers in fading light – Sunflowers

Last week I did a post on fading disbuds in fading light, but they weren’t my only leftover flowers. I had run a workshop and I had a student bring a huge bunch of sunflowers for us to use, which were wonderful. I also took these sunflowers to the Alice in Wonderland shoot. But after…

Fading flowers in fading light – Disbuds

These disbuds were travelling along really nicely, I had used them in a shoot last week, then again in a workshop last weekend. This week had been crazy with ‘life stuff’ and they were left in a bucket of water just outside the studio door. Many of them were well past their prime, but these…
