Macro-licious--FSO

The FSO topic this week is macro.  I love these types of shots because they bring attention where there is not normally such focused attention.  In bringing attention to the details of things, it helps us see that beauty can be found at the smallest levels of human existence.  By beauty, I mean anything that evokes the power of creativity.  I have practiced macro just recently and I say practice because it is something I do not know a whole lot about as far as how to do it "right".  So many others participating in this shoot-out really do it amazingly and are very inspiring.  Click here to check out some of the others.

  2. These are some great shots Lena. I suppose if you can see tiny details in the object that makes it macro. Thanks for your visit. The statue mentioned in your comment is a small statue near my deck. It is so deteriorated but I keep it for interest. Blessings
