Seeing red

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw these tiny ranunculuses at Sunny's the other day. I did a triple take because I didn't think you could find them at any florist at this time of year! You can't really tell from this picture, but these buds are eensy weensy. Ah, and so very dreamy. :)

Shot with a +2 close-up filter on the 50mm f1.2. I eventually stopped down to about f/3.2 on this one, because otherwise I'd have half a petal in focus and the other not!

They look just as cute through an Instagram lens.

Obviously my obsession continued from there and I grabbed a few on film too. Oh AND I shot a few on the x100. I was looking for my Polaroid too but it seems to be MIA since the move. Yikes.


  1. you can't find any flowers here in vancouver :( it's so gross here.

    i love the first picture, the focus is perfect.

  2. lovely. We're lucky enough to have lots in the garden at the moment. :)

  3. I find the result very successful
