Shutter Therapy

After my second session of chemo on Friday I felt like I needed some shutter therapy so as it was a pleasant sunny morning today I took the 60mm Macro in the garden to take a few snaps.

All taken with the E-M5 & 60mm Macro and Processed in Capture One 7 Pro

Pink Daisy ( I think)


Laburnum Blossom




White Camelia


Thank for looking.

Re: Shutter Therapy

Your Laburnum is well in flower. Mine is a few weeks off flowering yet but looks like it will be a great display. The Camelia's were amazing this year too. May I wish you the very best with your treatment and a speedy recovery.

Re: Shutter Therapy

As usual, the results of your Shutter Therapy are inspiration for all of us. We're all rooting for you, Paul, and wishing you a full and speedy recovery. Glad the potography is helping you keep your moral up.

Re: Shutter Therapy

Cracking images there Paul. Even with my wife's best endeavours our garden is lacking right now.

Keep the spirits up Paul.

Re: Shutter Therapy

Some lovely images, Paul. As you say, photography as a hobby is wonderful therapy, and I'm sure it's helping take your mind off your treatment.
