MIFGS and Catching Up

This past week has been a bit of blur really. I mean that in a good way, but it went so quickly and now I am finding I’m doing catch ups all round.

Work Experience

The week was also very busy because I had my first ever work experience student. It was certainly an experience for both of us I think.  It was great fun and I really enjoyed teaching her and showing her around. I loved how involved she got and was so interested to learn. It was funny watching her diving into Photoshop and getting hooked. I know that feeling.  I hope I will see her again in the future.

MIFGS

Or to be more precise the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. It has been on this last week. I went in on Wednesday and had planned on going again, but the weather really took a turn for the worse. I enjoyed what I saw, and you will some of that as the photos today are from there.

I love how you can just go and take photos of the flowers and there isn’t any pressure to buy. There are always some very interesting ones to see as well.

If you are in Melbourne today it is the last day to see it.

Photos

As I said the photos today are from the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. They were taken with the Tamron 90mm macro 2.8 lens and the Nikon 28-300mm lens. I was very happy to have had both those lens with me, it was like I had everything covered. We went around once, so I could take photos with the macro lens, then went back to take some photos with the other one.

It is a great opportunity to see display gardens, new flowers and what’s new for the garden. It is a photographers feast.

I will be doing some more work on some of the macro shots and will show them in a post soon.

I hope your weekend is going well. We have a few days of colder weather, rain and it has been lovely. So nice not having to turn on the air conditioner.

  9. How fun having a work study student! Nice photos. My favorite are the long one of the hall and the fountain with the building in the back. I know what you mean about the week being a blur.

    March 21, 2016
    • It was fun, she was really good. The fountain one was great, the lighting was just perfect, if you ask me. It has been a big blur, time to get some work done.
