macro within the lens


Macro photography can be glorious. As we pick up the camera to bring eyes closer to the subject, so much can happen, behind the lens. The glorious bokeh, that can be found throughout the photo, is just magic. Macro photography can be tender, yet strong, and always inviting- like an out stretched hand, welcoming us along for the ride, within the lens. 

I adore when a photo allows me to get lost for a moment, in its layers. When I saw the photo below, from Rain City Girl, I wanted to wrap it around my shoulders. The material, the intricate design, it was as though this photo was close enough, for me to run my hands over its texture... or walk along its grand bokeh. 

Macro photography, is a most beautiful invitation, to share photos. 

Warmly,

You always find the right words to match the mood and the photograph. I don't have a macro lens but you make me want one -- no, "need" one!!! And yes, it puts you right inside the object and that is such a delicious feeling!
