sunday stills - macro



Each week there is a photo challenge over at Sunday Stills. I figure it's a good way to force myself to take photos of subjects other than Sophie...and to continue learning how to use my new camera. This week it's a macro challenge...this is the handle of our wood stove at the cottage.

I love macro photos. There is something so mystical about being so close to a subject as to make it seem otherworldly.
I hope to have a slr one day, I would love to learn to do more than just point and shoot.

It's amazing how when you zoom in close, or shoot a completely different angle, the commonplace becomes unrecognizable. Nice photo challenge here.

Thanks for the link to Sunday Stills. I look forward to learning a lot.

I've used the macro setting on my camera for taking photos of flowers, insects, etc. But never thought about items like the woodstove handle.

Cool shot. I admire your photography. I am photo challenged. Years ago I had to take a Photojournalism class. I dropped the class as I was stupid. Well, I had to take it anyway later on and somehow I survived.

Great shot. I've really need to get out my camera more often and take some macros. It puts such a different prospective on things!

Pam said...

Beautiful! Thanks for posting the link to Sunday stills.
