Miami Macro

Every now and then I get a craving for serious macro. It's like a sushi craving- it won't go away until you give in to the impulse. Why do I like this style of photography so much? I guess it gives me that dreamy, other-wordly feeling that you sometimes get after a long afternoon nap. Kind of spacey but spot on- that's how my images make me feel when I get them right.
The first one is lavender- up close and personal. My sister Jennifer's Lavender plant in Miami.

There's something about lavender that we recognize instinctively- calming, relaxing and soul satisfying. Heaven would be lying in a field of lavender.

While I am not a big fan of aniseed flavoured tarragon in my food- I love the bold little flowers- so brave and debonair in their yellow-ness.

Key lime blossoms- a hint of yellow, purple and green that will somehow miraculously transform into a firm, green lime. Isn't nature beyond amazing?
A shell that in perfectly symmetrical in its concentric swirls

Your photography is so beautiful, Sharon. I'm partial to the lavender, but that's just a favorite color. You have a lovely blog and I'm so glad to have found you! Debi @ GHT

I like the shell. It's perfect. I like how it's not as clear in the back but fairly sharp in the front. The colors of the shell show up well, could have been even better with a little more color intensity.

The flower shots are really vibrant.

I enjoy macro every now and then, I usually end up with something more that I can see with my own eyes, which is always a nice suprise.
