Detail Oriented

11 May

I’m still working on this whole macro photography thing. I feel like I could quite possibly, maybe come to like doing these sorts of photos. I find each picture to be a reminder of the delicate intricacies that sustains life, or on the other hand, the intricacies that are left after life has disappeared. Or I suppose the details in life we miss being so busy with “bigger, better” things.

The top photo is a branch of a full grown, papa tree reaching out to greet oncommers and the wind. The second is looking directly down upon a little guy reaching towards the sky where his papa stands tall. Next follows natures carpet, fighting to keep the world warm against the blustery winds, clear frozen solid water, and dusty snowflakes.

The last two are examples of battles fought and lost. Proving to be tiny examples of the destruction of harvesting, the remnants stand tall despite being crushed. A story of growth and prosperity, jealousy and battles of a stronger force, and the consequences of war. A story of life. A story of history. A story of the future.

    The best thing about macro photos for me is the natural patterns in all things. Mother nature creates all things whether large, small or macro. The swirls in the sand or the ribs of a leaf are just very cool.

      Aren’t they? I’m continually amazed by the level of detail created in nature.

    Not sure whether the fourth one down counts as macro (one of the fun aspects of macro is that it’s easy to lose a sense of scale), but I like it! The wood chips seem like they go on FOREVER.

      That’s very true, and I maybe should have made note of that. But I liked it so much I couldn’t pass on posting it!
      I’m glad you stopped by!

    I like the fourth one. Good use of DOF, and it reminds me of how we like to kill everything…well, not doctors – they are the exception.

      Thank you, sir. And I have to say, as a (very distant future) doctor, we are not exactly exempt from destruction, even if we are just trying very hard to make things better.
