Seeing The World Through A New Perspective

A friend of mine said I would never use my macro lens after I finished last semester’s macro photography class.  That bothered me a bit because the purchase of the Tamron lens was a bit of a stretch for a retiree.   But now I am finding I can’t stop using it!  It’s allowing me to look at the world through a new perspective.   I am now seeing things that I have never seen before and being almost 62 years old, that’s pretty surprising.  There is beauty in this world, that I have never noticed.  

 

I started photographing wild flowers this spring.  As I was driving on Sunday,  I noticed some little yellow flowers along the side of the road  with some flowering clover.  I was excited that there was a new wild flower to add to the collection.  When I looked at the photo results, I was amazed at the shapes and detail of both the yellow flowers and the clover. 

 

 

 

When I went to shoot peony photos at Boerner Botanical this week, I noticed some small star-shaped flowers.  I went in for the macro shot and this is what I saw.  Amazing detail on such a small scale. 

 

 

Also these little triangular flowers with the furry centers. 

 

 

Saw these interesting flowers on a hike at Paradise Springs in Eagle.  Details  that you don’t really notice unless you are looking at them closely. 

 

 

I love seeing the world through a new perspective.
