"the wonderful world of weeds" or "I love the macro lens"











A little early morning wandering with the dogs, the camera, and the wild, (mostly dead),plants on the mesa.

  1. Again some amazing close up work. The second photo from the top reminder me of a orchestra's conductor - his hands raised, fingers spread in great passion to have the group bring forth the most the music has to offer ... somewhat like the details you capture in the photos of plants on the mesa. Dead plants, no, just resting between the notes of life .... ;)

    PS - not sure why but I like that your photos trigger something in me.

    I just "learned of the macro" last summer! Lol.
    Never knew there was such a thing.
    Hey, I'm blonde, and I'm a painter, first.

  5. Slowing down to capture all of these little details must be really lovely. Such a great process of walking, viewing, zooming right in..... on the details that could be easily missed. You work the macro lens well Julie ;)

    1. Thank you, I love the macro! It really is a process of slowing down and seeing nature up close. Sometimes I am actually crawling or laying in the sand to get these shots!
