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.
