photoblog image Canberra Floriade October 2008

Good image I must go and see this one year
idleye: Hu vintage
Yes there were heaps of flower fanciers and photographers there. I bet you would fit in perfectly. My tip - take tripod - you won't really need it but it will help the photographing process.

Beautiful colours. love how they have planted the small white flowers under the tulips.
idleye: Hey Aussie
The people that put these 'flower exhibitions' together are amazing. The first one that caught my eye had a beachy theme, complete with surfer, shark and all in flowers. I didn't try to photograph that one cos it was sort of too hard to figure out how to do it justice.

Here twice today. The image just draws you in. Lovely.
idleye: Hello Mary, nice to have you drop in. This was a bit of sleeper image - it wasn't til I printed it, stuck it up at work and got lots of 'wow' comments that I felt confident enough to post. And with surprisingly little twiddling - just a little level & mid tones.

What a wonderful carpet of flowers.
idleye: Thanks Ingrid,
The Floriade goes for about 2 weeks and I took this on the Saturday of the weekend it closed. So the floewers were in amazing shape still. The whole item (this was only one display of dozens and dozens) was 2 or 3 or 4 times bigger than the 'in shot' area which is in fact quite large anyway - focal length 55mm!
PS love your strange country series - in fact I am going to drop and say that again.
