April Showers Bring May Flowers: Flower Fancies

We have hardly had any rain in april this year (in Germany), but we've got so many flowers anyway.

I love the smell of spring. I guess it’s because of the flowers. They are just about everywhere now . When I walk through my hometown I see flowers in front yards, in back yards, on balconies, flower beds are along the streets, so many trees and bushes are in flower … I love it!

I take photos of flowers at any place, and when I forget to bring my camera, sometimes I pick one and take it home with me (put it into a vase and take a picture).

I love taking flower-photos with my Diana Multi Pinhole Operator. It’s my favourite camera anyway. I’m really into this time-consuming “work”. It demands so much patience and accuracy from you. My first results were really undelightful, but I’m getting there more and more (with every roll of film).

A few weeks ago I bought myself a Fisheye Lens for my Diana Edelweiss. I find it beautiful to have a wonderful flower in front, surrounded by a blurred and round picture in the background. The key is to get real close to that flower so it fills most of the picture with its beautiness and bright colours.

After my fancy spring flowers are the most beautiful ones as they are so bright & intense in colour, I simply am in love with them!!! :-)
