The Best Photos of 2014. Maybe.


This is the time of year that I frantically try and complete a calendar for 2015.  Here is the short list of my photos. It has been a strange photographic year really. Some memorable shots but maybe not as many as in past years so it has been relatively easy to get down to a final set of 22. all help appreciated in helping me choose the final 12.

New Malden Opium ?

Excitement in the Chives


The garden starts to come alive with some sun and water. Poppies do decent impersonations of Triffids. Chives just look great.

Poppies in the garden


One of the more hateful denizens of our garden, squirrels are the chief suspect, seems to have knocked down one of the growing poppies. Resultingly this humble little angiosperm had to be taken inside to be cared for upon which two large petals fell off. Cue time to get the Macro lens and get some spontaneous poppy photos. Enjoy.
