While I am not fortunate enough to own a macro lens, I do love close-up photography. Much to the chagrin of my neighbors, you will find me crawling around on my hands and knees in my yard trying to capture my puppies at play.
Getting the right depth of field and an interesting angle with the short focal length of my beloved 35mm lens is sometimes a challenge. More often then not, I end up with tongue prints and doggie slobber on my lens. But once in awhile, I get lucky with a full frame of furry goodness, complete with a hairy tongue... then my heart melts.
Look at the cat's eyes in Cynthia's photo. The square format adds to the drama and intensity of the cat's stare. Or is a glare? Hmmmm.... Does it leave you wondering what dear Pussa is thinking or if Cynthia got swatted after she clicked?
Today, I invite you to get up close and personal with someone (or something) in your life.
The Slice of Life Project with the talented photographer and writer Darrah Parker beginning on July 11th. We will select one enty at random and announce the winner on Wednesday.
Have a delightful week.
