"I work from awkwardness.
By that I mean I don't like to arrange things
If I stand in front of something, instead of arranging it, I arrange myself."
~ Diane Arbus
This is how I roll…
I love macro shots!
For me, it often happens that when I am taking a photo,
that I spot some detail or colour or bug that catches my eye
and I have to explore further with my lens!
My neighbours and friends often
comment laugh at me
for how close I get or the convoluted positions
I get myself into to capture a photo…
My vision has just begun to feel the impact of my age
and I often can't tell, from the back of my camera,
how well a photo will turn out.
So when I import my pictures to the computer
and find one that is what I had hoped for,
I know that all those tangled and awkward positions
have been well worth the effort!!
So, I was a little surprised and disappointed,
upon my return to to blogging,
to discover that the Macro Monday meme
that I had previously participated in had closed its doors…
Then last night, while doing my regular Sunday blog rounds,
I was delighted to find a new one,
Macro Monday 2 , hosted by Gemma Wiseman!
For my first contribution I have chosen a photo from this summer
of a friendly bee on one of my coneflowers...
Thank you, Gemma, for providing a space to post and enjoy the macro photos of others!
