Frustrated by a design blockage, I decided to take the Lumix DMC FZ48 camera out with a X10 macro lens filter attached and see what I could find to photograph in the garden. Here is some garden macrophotography. The depth of field is so shallow that some shots looked like they were taken under water. The experience reminded me somewhat of photography on a coral reef.
