I took with me my 50mm lens for my camera. By taking only this one lens with its fixed focal length I was forced to look at things differently. I couldn't zoom in, and I couldn't take macro photos but there was still plenty I could do.
Being still winter, the wildflowers haven't opened yet, but the buds are forming and getting ready to burst into flower. The plant below is called water bush - bossiaea aquifolium. It has yellow flowers and the leaves cup any falling rain and shower it on you if you brush past. There was a little caterpillar on one of the leaves.
Below is the Prickly Hakea - Hakea amplexicaulis. Can you see the bud in the middle of the last leaf? The flowers form in the centre of each of those leaves coming up the stem. These will still be a couple of months before they flower.
Below is one of the Banksias. I took this photo from below the tree looking up. Near this tree I spied a new banksia pushing up through the leaf litter.
Don't discount the browns
And looking up. It had clouded over when I took this photo, but I rather like the affect.
And catching the light
And playing with some creative blur
And photographing into the light.
Do you have a 50mm lens? If you "google" there are lots of places on the net where you can find out more information about using your 50mm lens. Here are a couple I found.
