Lens-Artist Challenge #130- Close Encounters Thanks to Anne Sandler for hosting this week's challenge and for her excellent explanation of the difference between close-up and macro photography. It was very informative! I love doing macro shots. It's like looking into another world to me. Sure, most of my macros are of insects and flowers. Those... Continue Reading →
RDP- Macro If you've seen my photos, you know I love macro! Here are some examples. It was cool that this grasshopper was on the window and I could get some really neat angles.

Here are some lovely roses that remind me of orange sherbet. Just a subtle little blush to the edges. They're so elegant!
I'm trying to get back into the swing of posting again. I've been lax in that all summer it seems. I think maybe I can get going again by posting some flower photos. I had the opportunity to capture some flowers at the local nursery this year and it was like opening a treasure chest!... Continue Reading →
