This week's theme for FSO is urban macro. I think it is a great idea. Macro is usually focused on natural images so this was kind of an interesting twist.
I hope you enjoyed my take on the theme. If you are interested, I recently wrote a city-inspired poem: In the City. I think the lesson of this assignment is how rampant beauty is. It can be found in the most mundane of places. Even places that may not seem overtly beautiful, the close-up details can show a different aspect of it where its beauty can be appreciated. I think the really great photographers who do Macro show this idea in their work. It is definitely my goal with photography, although it is sometimes a challenge being totally inexperienced with it and having limited technical knowledge. The FSO has taught me a lot and I love learning from looking at what others have done. Well, I hope you enjoy and I am off to enjoy my last night as a 35 year old!
