About four weeks ago I decided to bite the bullet and get my first crown (teeth). I’d been putting it off because it’s an expensive exercise and I don’t fancy having anaesthetic in my mouth. I have got some medical cover which covers dental work but I only get a quarter of it back which is the fodder for another post altogether.
I left work early on the Thursday before Easter and walked to the dentist about half an hour away from work. As I was nearly there it was a bit early and I noticed a man walking ahead of me. I thought he looked suspiciously like my dentist and I didn’t want to fell obliged to talk to him so I ducked into the Botanic Gardens to avoid him and to kill the 15 minutes I had before my appointment.
I found an area of the gardens near the Wine Centre that I hadn’t visited before and saw a lot of Sturt Desert Peas.
Now that I carry my little camera with me it was just a simple matter of taking it out my bag and trying the super macro setting. I like it.
I didn’t just focus on these beautiful flowers. There were other interesting things as well.
I just took this one without looking through the viewfinder and I like how it turned out.
After spending about 15 minutes looking around and taking some photos I walked to the dentist nice and relaxed.
In other news, remember how I took some photos at a three year old’s birthday party a couple of weeks ago? Well I’ve been invited to his twin sisters’ one year old birthday party to take photos and I’m being paid for it this time. I didn’t quite know what to charge but I’m happy with what I’ve quoted and they’ve accepted.
