This is a bit of a change from our normal work. We were staying with Paul’s cousin Gro who has a beautiful garden in Oslo – and the sun shone the whole time. So, we had an excellent opportunity to experiment with some macro photography. Oh, and we have included some colour…
Close-up of a member of the onion family – allium.
I think this is actually a weed but I loved the structure and the colour.
This is the allium again.
Again, not sure what this bee is sipping his nectar from but it was an apian favourite.
Normal black and white service is resumed – this is the blue weed again, also a favourite with bees.
The pollen area that attracts the bees.
An onion in the vegetable garden.
Another close-up of the centre of a flower.
This one we recognised – the poppy.
Similarly, we could name this, the common dandelion.
As is this.
After all that photography, the well-placed deck chair was pretty inviting.

The Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh isn’t far from where I live and are an excellent place to visit all year round. I’ve taken a series of monochrome images that give a winter impression, so here they are. If it is too cold for you, there’s always the glasshouses. Shot on a Fujifilm XE-2.
Over the past few weeks the Edinburgh Botanical Gardens have been opened up for some illuminated night walks. Our visit was fairly busy with families and their smaller members seemed to enjoy themselves based on volume of expression.
If I’d had a bit more time, I’d have done a few longer exposure shots, but, instead, stuck with picking out an impressionistic set to give a flavour of what it was like. That’s the arty way of saying I took some quick shots
As just posted, we’re in autumn now and there’s a lot of flora crying out for a a black and white photograph to be taken. In my world anyway. Here’s another one of them. A series of two now…there may be more.
