I'd been meaning to take macro photos of a particular object for a while, and only got around to it last night while working on a paperweight. As always, it took a bit of doing to get the light and orientation right, to say nothing of focus. That's the challenge. The fun part is seeing what the world looks like up close. As a reminder, the area you see on screen is about 3 x 4 mm in real life.
But first, a serene blue image to start you off.
And now the feature images. Are you ready?
A couple more of the same thing.
A couple more macro from the same area of the hurricane paperweight.
Of the Day
That clump of faded rose blooms are still hanging in there. At the rate they're going, I'll get all kinds of frosty and snowy photos of them all winter.
Non macro, but reflective shot of the hurricane paperweight, showing what happens when you don't control the light.
