Last week we took a family stroll along the river on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I haven’t really seen this hidden part of Staines-Upon-Thames before, and it was only spoilt by the occasional dumped rubbish or poo tied up in a bag (why do dog walkers do that?). Plus I got a gnat bite which has been driving me crazy, but it was still a wonderful hour on an August afternoon.
Some interesting angles.
And my favourite, a couple of macro shots to finish off.
I’m very excited to have discovered a new competition for Macro photography on MusinwithSusan. Please check out her blog for the rules, and links to others taking part.
I love macro photography, especially since I got my new phone a few weeks ago as a belated birthday present. This picture was taken in my garden on a Sony Xeperia Z5 Compact.
I have posted a few pictures of this lovely Rose Chafer on my blog, but this actual photo wasn’t used. I think it’s better than the previous ones (I hope that’s not classed as cheating in the rules).
I love the details my cameraphone has picked out. Don’t you just want to tickle that furry little belly!
