Macro or Really Close

Taking advantage of the sunshine and warm weather last weekend, I took my new camera outside for a few macro  (flower setting) shots. I have had the camera for a month and must admit that I’ve yet to read the instruction manual or watch the CD, but gave it a try anyway and these are straight out of the camera.

  1. Hi Honey,
    If I didn't KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPH WAS THE EYE OF A GARGOYLE...
    I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WAS THE EYE OF A HORSE ON A VINTAGE MERRY GO ROUND.
    I love all your photographs but I love the branch that had been sawed off.
    Thank You for sharing them

  4. Great job! I think the one of the eye is stunning! Really grabs you. I also like the tiny washer. The contrast of the metal and the sidewalk is really interesting. The green stained glass is so pretty with the light coming in. I really enjoyed your photos. Thanks for your visit to my macro photo post. hugs, Linda

  16. I have to agree, the washer shot is great. Something about the stones in the cement and the sleekness of the washer. Awesome!

  32. I like to take macro photos. The only criticism I have of my new camera is that the macro is not so good as on the old.
