Close-ups

More photos from the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. I enjoy the sculptural qualities of succulents and cacti, and I love them as subjects for  photography.

And thanks for following Drawing-of-the-Day. Your photographs are wonderful as are your drawings. I particularly like the chocolate éclair, a private pastry to be eaten sans fork. There's nothing boring that's going to happen when you bite into it wondering whether its your jeans or your shirt that's going to take the hit?
