An Hour With a Flower
Lens: Pentax 50mm f-1.8 Camera: K5-IIs Photo Location: in house

When one is recovering from surgery time can begin to weigh heavily. Since I haven't been able to get out with my camera, I decided to bring a bit of nature inside. A quick trip to the supermarket (I needed to buy some chocolate milk anyway) for a bunch of cut flowers and I was in business.

The photos below are of one lone, slightly bedraggled, lily that was in the bunch. This one flower gave me an hour's enjoyment, and I thought I would share some of my pleasure with you. The lens was the "thrifty fifty" 50mm f-1.8 sometimes with a Raynox M-150 on the end of it. ISOs ran from 80 to 400, and apertures ranged from f-1.8 to f-16. The photos aren't great, but it was a gratifying afternoon for me. Enjoy.
