I stopped at the Lamberton Conservatory yesterday and there was very few people there. That’s good for me because I like to take my time and I hate to be a bother to other patrons. I thought it was a good day to go because rain was predicted and it did look like it was about to rain all morning, but we never got a drop. No matter, the light is usually very nice and even inside and I got a few shots I may not have been able to get if it were crowded. Although I shot some interesting flowers, I tended to focus more on leaves of various plants.
The requirement to post a photo of Emo is hereby fulfilled. If you feel compelled to comment, please mention him as his ego needs stroking every so often.
I like them all 🙂
Emo has turned his (her?) back on you.
I expect it is because you have not let the poor thing blog anymore.
Nice variations of green.
Thanks, John. He (Emo) enjoys the morning light coming from the East window. He has super human (?) hearing (note the ear turned back) so it’s impossible to sneak up on him. He seems to be enjoying his retirement and is content to live out his days with the least possible amount of excitement.
Nice, it’s inspiring…I think these will help me to ‘see’ better next time I go to our local botanical garden. Were you using your macro lens, or a more normal lens?
Thanks, Charles. I I usually start with the zoom and work my way around and then attach the macro. This time I started with the macro and spent the entire time there with it. I make about 3 or 4 trips to the conservatory each year and, although it’s small, I always find new things to see and photograph and I’m never bored.
A whole gallery of gems! I especially like the shot of (maiden hair?) ferns through the glass. And Emo, you snuck Emo into the conservatory? I can’t imagine you did it with anyone’s approval, and most certainly not his.
Thanks, ehpem. Emo prefers to stay home when I go out and he’s happy to do so.
The windows are whitewashed several times a year to diffuse the light on shade loving plants. I shot this from the outside looking in.
Really great shots!
The shots of leaves are all very nice, but I am partial to Emo enjoying the sunshine. And his retirement.
Thanks, Melinda. He so enjoys the simple pleasures. It’s a life lesson for me.
Cats can usually be counted on to provide good life lessons. Fr example, my cat, Balboa, reminds me every morning of the importance of a good breakfast. Sure, she is concerned about her OWN breakfast, but still…
Balboa and Emo would get along fine if Emo wasn’t so shy. He also likes to remind me to treat yourself (and him) several times a day.
Great shots Ken! I love how Emo turn your back on you, hihi! I will do some similar shot soon, I’m going to Florida soon. Can’t wait! 😀
Thanks, Anne. I think you;ll have a great time in Florida.
