Lazy Sunday – Careful

The wonder of modern cameras, and phones is that even the more affordable models allow you to take macro shots. Looking carefully at something shows you a whole new world of detail. It is amazing how the most prosaic things can look wonderful up close or items that you live with every day take on a new perspective when you focus in on them. I love setting up little “still life” shots using objects around the house and use them as prompts for my weekly Haiku Challenge. (click here if you would like to see the different prompts and maybe read a haiku or two) With a trend towards “mindfulness” at the moment, careful appreciation of the detail of small things is a great way to gain a sense of appreciation for the wonders of life.

Hope your Sunday is a lazy one! TJ

These are small selection of some of my macro shots that I have taken over the past year.
