Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

MAGICAL July 29, 2008

I decided that it’s going to be really really hard for me to narrow down “favorites” from this session I did at the park this past (burning hot) Friday that I had off from work.

Hats off to those of you that have a knack for showing a few or one favorite from the day.  I just haven’t mastered that yet and I’m not sure I ever will. So, you’ll have the pleasure of seeing MANY (twenty) photos from the day that I looooooooove!

I cannot express in words how much abstract macro photos move me. When I saw these on the computer when I got home I was pretty much breathless as the results the 105mm VR produces.  I love the DOF this lens provides.

The word that kept coming to my mind when I saw some of these was MAGICAL. That’s all I kept saying…and I don’t know why they move me so much but they do! I truly love this particular art form (Abstract).

Maybe it’s because I come from a past of doing a lot of drawing and painting (when I was much younger) that I see the magic they possess.

I will warn you that some are WAY OUT THERE ABSTRACT with only the tiniest little edge in focus! (Just how I like ’em!)

If you feel inclined to do so…you can leave a comment on any photo that “moves you” right on my website under the photo.

    Photographing “up close and personal” beautiful flowers such as these always lifts my spirits and revives my soul; hopefully it did the same for you, my friend. 🙂

    Lovely, beautiful images. I left a few notes on your Smugmug site.

    Fantastic! You’ve got such a good eye for composing these flower macros. I am amazed at how precisely you captured the detail in the focal points of each. My fav is #11…

    Hey Jen — AWESOME, magical is right I love #18

  6. as I mentioned the other day to you these are divine. I will be hanging some in my bathroom. They will go perfectly with the other macro flower prints I ordered from you! I just have to narrow down the right ones. I love the prickley one towards the top.

    Magical is the best word.
