Macro Month: Day 21

This map is FAR more interesting up close!


Macro Month: Day 19



Today’s macro shots are of things that provide little or no interest normally. The first is the very tiny flower of a weed that was growing in my garden. Its is one of those trailing weeds that are tiny, but get into everything. The second is a photo of the leaves on one of my petunias. I am not a huge fan of petunias. The flowers are floppy and never seem to last long and I think they are even less attractive without flowers. When I took the photo I was happy to find a point of interest. They are incredibly HAIRY! I can appreciate them for that. What’s more I am sure that the hairs have some function that I would find fascinating if I knew it. Whether it is related to water or bugs, I have no idea and if I ever find a moment I will Google it, but I have no time now, I have Kindergym to go to and photos to take, edit and upload. Petunia hair functions come below those on my list of priorities so they will have to wait.



Macro Month: Day 10

I was inspired by a blog on wordpress that I follow to take this photo. After reading Leanne Cole’s post ‘Death Flower‘ I was walking outside in my garden and noticed that my lilys were also flowering so I grabbed my iPhone and had a look at them in a different way.

Macro Month: Day 8

This is another flower that looks much better close up. These grow under my window in boggy soil in full shade. I threw some seeds in in frustration at NOTHING growing and most of what I threw in there didn’t grow either. Months later these popped up. They are actually pretty straggly looking, but they put some colour in my garden and I do love colour. I continue to be amazed by the intricate beauty of flowers.

Macro Month: Day 5

This sorry excuse for a geranium flower looks beautiful from a distance for its amazing red colour (the very reason it has a place in my garden), but it is on its way out. It is dying, the petals are torn and darkening and covered in mud after a rainy winter. When I went to photograph it, it was for its colour, but I was delighted to find this tiny surprise upon looking closely. It pays to take the time to stop and look. We miss so much.
