Trying a different approach yesterday morning, I got down at ground level to look from another perspective. I was just looking for bits of light and color. If I decide that this is worthwhile, the worst aspect of it will be getting down on the ground and trying to see what the camera sees. For this trial I used the TG-5 in macro mode and that meant that I had to use the LCD to compose the image. The combination of sunlight and the angle and the foliage in the way made it difficult. If I want to do much of this I should probably order a macro lens for my micro 4/3 cameras since they have articulating LCDs.
I can hear it now. Someone is going to call the nurses and report a man down on the ground. Seriously, that could be a problem around here and result in unneeded emergency response from the nursing staff.
Later in the afternoon, I took a walk and found some crocuses that were opened, but I just bent over to make these images. I didn’t lay down on the ground.
