Macro Month: Portrait of a Common Green Grub

He’s not exactly spectacular, but I’m afraid he was one of only a few that I was able to find!



Macro Series: Photo 13

The other day my boys played in the front yard. I took my iphone and a cheap macro lens outside with them. These are the photos I took.

These two images were taken inside the kitchen after I saw the spider. I decided to experiment with lighting with a torch. Not too bad really considering what was used.

Macro Month: Day 6

When I took the photo of my snow pea flower earlier I saw the beginnings of what is referred to as ‘green candy’ in our house. Mainly because it is the only way we can get E to eat them, but the pod is called the ‘wrapper’. The wrapper is my favourite part and I was excited to see the start of what I consider to be the tastiest plant in the vegetable garden.

I love this photo because when I look at it I see a tiny, delicate beginning and when you look closely it is beautiful. It is nearly a shame I will be eating it.

S is for swim.

This was a safe swim for W through a backyard full of clover that was nearly higher than he was. There is something about the composition I like. The green sea around him and the shot of the top of his head. It’s definitely not a perfect photo. Not really even a great photo. It’s probably that as the mother you always are looking at the top or back of their head. I love to look at the direction his hair is growing. It swirls around like a crop circle! Haha, I think that is enough of an insight into my inner thought processes tonight. I hope you can enjoy the photo even if perhaps not in the same way I do.


S is also for sick boy sleeping and the mother that sleeps beside him to make sure he is safe.
