Gerbera Macro (2)

30 March 2010; 1822 Hours
[Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 | ISO 400 | 100 mm | 1.3 seconds | F/8.0]

Playing with a Macro Lens last night; the flowers were meant to be a gift to loved one but it’s been at least a year since I’ve done any macro and the flowers are just budding around here.

This was shot with a Flash and a Tripod and the Macro settings were set to 1:1; I am not too happy with the lighting but I couldn’t find my off-camera cord (for the Flash) when I needed it last night.

St Patrick’s Day

Trafalgar Square, London
15 March 2009; 1824 Hours
[Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 | ISO 1600 | 50 mm | 1/100 seconds | F/2.0]

Archive from last year.

The celebrations at Trafalgar Square were over by the time I stumbled onto it; I took a couple of shots and left. This is one of them.

According to WikiPedia: “Saint Patrick’s Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig) is a yearly holiday celebrated on 17 March. It is named after Saint Patrick (circa AD 387–461), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. It began as a purely Catholic holiday and became an official feast day in the early 1600s. However, it has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Ireland’s culture.”

London in Winter (5)

Plumstead, London
07 January 2010; 1150 Hours
[Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 | ISO 400 | 16 mm | 1/500 seconds | F/11]

I took this shot through the kitchen window; I was visiting and I liked how the sun transformed this scene.



I waited for some sign of life on the street but by the time a neighbour walked by with her dog, the sun had disappeared and the sky was back to its usual grey color.
