Macro Abstract and Pigs

macro close up image of tan and green lichen looking like shag carpet on the side of a caveI’ve been grooving on my macro lens recently. I’ve wanted one for years and now that I have it, I am feeling the joy. For example, this lichen in Warsaw Caves park. Looks like shag carpet or a furry coat.

I find it interesting that after years of shooting vast landscapes I find myself going to the other extreme. How close can I get?

Pretty darn close, apparently.

And when the subject is as lovely as these piglets, it’s hard not to get right in there and say hello.

Late Winter Fields

Needless to say, there’s been a lot going on that has kept me from my regular photo habit.

Spring will arrive soon. And after that, summer. It seems even then I will be posting only occasionally.

I hope when the fall comes ’round again, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled photo posts.

In the mean time, I’ll keep sending out photos as best I can.
