While we were at my wife’s aunt and uncle’s house, north of San Diego, I followed my daughter Mollie… now in her second year of college… around, while she took some shots with my camera using the macro lens. That isn’t a starfish. It is a star sewn on an American flag.
A super-close-up of the stitching on the flag.
I think that is a big clay frog that sits on the front porch. The little hair might even be an eyelash.
The teeth on a saw.
Part of a flower.
Ummm… that might be the plastic bristles on a broom?
And that could be aunt Sharon’s straw gardening hat? I should have spent less time looking lovingly at my daughter and paid more attention to what she was taking pictures of.
But it looks like a hat to me… maybe.
That is the cool thing about macro photography.
When you get really close to things, the look different.
It is a whole new, weird world down at that level.
Like, who knew that the side of a car tire was so interesting?
