The Deck – Week 28


On one of those midday walks with Nikhil, while he was experimenting with his IR filter and generally trying to get his photo for the 365 Project that he is undertaking, I spent some time trying to get this photograph…

The problem?  That darn bee  🙂  although I took lots more photographs of houses or parts of houses this last week, I liked this shot for the Deck, maybe because I spent so much time trying to get it, maybe because I already have too many photos of buildings, maybe because, of the candidates for this week’s choice of photograph, this was one of the few that were still processed as colour and not monochrome  🙂

This was taken at The Seven Ponds, a monument in the Botanical Gardens, so many things around to photograph and I spent loads of minutes on this  🙂

As a small photograph and, worst yet, as a thumbnail, it’s a photograph of a flower, water-lily, some large leaves…  my particular interest in the photograph was the insect, the busy bee… so just to show you what it was that REALLY interested me… I’ve included the following enlargement  🙂

If only I had a longer lens, or that flower was closer to the edge of the pond  🙂

  1. I think the overall composition is very good. It doesn’t really need the extreme crop to show the bee, he shows up just fine. And the way the image is composed leads your eye right to him.

    All in all, an excellent shot.

    WoW. I can’t imagine this photograph any better than this. The bee by itself is a great picture. The flower by itself is also a great picture. Now the bee and the flower, they just go together
