Greenwich Park Flowers

Hoya G'Pk-1(1)A09A2058

As the instant flower meadow was gone,  I took a journey to

Greenwich Park where ample supply of flowers there.

Those close-up photos following here were taken without the Front Lens.

(It’s mean, just a lens from toy camera

Hoya G'Pk-1(6)178-001

Hoya G'Pk-1(7)179-001

Hoya G'Pk-1(8)A09A2063

In contrast to the almost pan-focus image of Retro-focus two element Lens,

this lens from toy camera shows very clear depth of field and out of focus Bokhe !

Isn’t this Bokhe, fantastic !  🙂

The park got a lots of Cosmos though,  they are a dwarf type

= grow only to 1~1.5′ tall.

—– or, Greenwich Park might be keeping the old taste (to grow Cosmos)  🙂

As a park garden, the flowers here were well kept in order !

It’s mean, when flower was finished, they will be replaced by the other flower.

So the order here was kept by the strict regime.

No luxury to yield a seeds. 

—– though, it’s hard to say, otherwise,  grown to be eaten,  which life is better ?

(So called Human is not necessary acting Humanely = pulled flowers straight

to the compost = buried alive and leave them to rotten !  = hersh isn’t it ? )

    Just gorgeous, Yoshi! I’d love to get a lens that does wonderfully unexpected soft focus. Very ethereal.

      Thank you Karen. In fact, everything was created by that toy lens. If you find a one-time use camera, use that lens mounted on your camera. (I used EOS – M42 adapter) To take picture with such lens on Nikon, you need to set [Non-CPU Lens] and may need to tweak something. Lens would give you close-up image first —> then try to put Concave lens (for short-eye sighted) if you were lucky, you will get good photos.

      I do what others don’t, and I don’t do what others do such as drink or watch tv, buy iPhone kind, even having a woman etc.
      Therefore, when all the camera are making sharp image, I started to make fuzzy one. Leaving sharp business to the others.
      Otherwise, why I happen to take picture. (There is a hidden issue of the fate.) 😀 😀

      Thank you Bente. The other half of this shooting will come soon. (May be I need to have shooting trip somewhere countryside.)

    Beautiful-particularly the hydrangeas and the lilies!

    • yoshizen said, on July 23, 2014 at 17:08

      The combination of fuzziness and the sharp detail on Hydrangea is rather puzzling !

  5. […] back to the post I did last year and found that it was one week earlier, yet still […]
