I’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.
The macro lens can make just about anything look like an abstract. The inside of this kettle in Warsaw Caves shows enough detail to be identifiable…
… but in these photos, it looks like a landscape, or just colour and texture.
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.
