The rain had taken a short break and I had the urge to grab my camera and explore some close-up images in the yard. I was actually quite amazed at the interesting effects the water droplets gave to some very common items. I found the yard to be full of tantalizing little beauties everywhere one looked. The only thing that took me away from the adventure was the fact that I was getting quite wet and cold myself, and the rain was starting up again.
The macro world has opened up many new opportunities for me to find nature’s beauty that is right before my eyes. We don’t notice this world as it is always there and we are in so much hurry that it is now invisible to us. I have found that finding this beauty can be very rewarding but it is not easy. I am so conditioned to be oblivious to this world that forcing myself to find it is not as easy a task as I thought it would be. Listed with each image is a short description of what it is and why I like it.
