Sometimes the composition is more interesting than the subject.

What makes us push the shutter? It isn’t always the subject that interests us.

I took this macro shot of a snail shell in an autumn leaf in my garden. The draw for me is purely the combination of shapes and colours. It really appeals to me.

I am sure there are a million ways to photograph a dandelion. Here are some of the others I took.

I loved the softness of this photo. It was taken to look like the inside of a soft, feather pillow.

There was an ant in my yard.

I am at home most of the time. I watched my sons play in the yard today. They like the sprinkler on a warm day. I entertained myself with a macro attachment on my Galaxy.
