A Closer Look

"We find the Works of Nature still more pleasant, the more they resemble those of art." - Joseph Addison

  1. I love your macro shots! Particularly the ageratum, which we think of sometimes as very ordinary. Not.

  2. Amazing imagery, Nancy. The quotes are fabulous. What IS that last shot? It is quite intriguing. Rocks and water I got…but, a blossom?

    Thanks, Debi — that rock shot is pebbles in a small bird bath…the “flowery thing” is a small bloom blown off a pine tree. :)

  3. Love how you have added a quote for each pic – my fave is the pineseed & pebbles in water and Einstein quote. You’ve certainly look deep into nature with these great shots.


  4. I’ve really enjoyed this! What camera do you use? Do you, like Frances, tend to use a separate camera for macros? (My ‘good’ camera is aging. I’m scared of the cost once I get into DSLR. So I’m thinking alternatives…) Jack

    Hi Jack — my camera is a Fuji s6000 that I’ve had for 3 years now. It’s not a D-SLR but has many manual features and a good macro. It’s 28 – 300mm lens — what they refer to as a “bridge camera”…half way between a point-and-shoot and a D-SLR. If I could buy another one just like it (with a higher megapixel), I would. I’ve used SLR’s and medium format cameras for years and love this camera best. :)

  5. Nancy girl ! How are you : )
    Wow .. aren’t these pretty ! .. and having the macro shots of them so much closer makes it seem like a whole different plant from that perspective .. that is what I love about the view point from camera to garden .. they are a perfect team : )
