Life in miniature format = Macro play

In the beginning of Spring in 2011 I was bored one afternoon and was looking for something to do. I ended up on the round-about close to my house in the flower bed. I cut open a flower’s one side and found a miniature world rich with life inside.

Photos were taken with a Canon 450D and stock 18-55mm lens.

There is a world out there and we miss so much of it, I really need to do more things like this.

Take your camera shopping.

We have many a shop around our homes that has some interesting options for photos.

I enjoy popping into my local garden centre and seeing what I can find to photograph. Below are photos taken 2 years ago at one of these garden centres.

Next time you are going to your local garden centre pack your camera in and see what photos you take home.

Out with the old in with the new.

Out with the old in with the new.

These photos were taken 2 years ago at our local river at the end of winter and beginning of spring. It was so nice to see life starting to come back to the grey and brown surrounding.

IMG_9276 IMG_9420 IMG_9439 IMG_9488I love the effect that your eyes get drawn up to the top of the photo and then starts running down the middle to the bottom.IMG_9500 I like this photo even though it’sa bit busy in the background, I’ll have to revisit this site.
