A Second Look



Wow, I'm branching out from tulips! lol

I never used to like the baby's breath that florists put with bouquets, until I happened to look at it through my macro lens. Isn't it amazing?

Morning Mary

I have just thrown some away this morning that was with my tulips.

My camera wouldn't do it justice and neither would I, what a great photograph you have taken!! Thank you, it will make me look and study more before I take a photo.

The tulips have been wonderful to behold but this knocks my socks off! I love the blurred back ground and the intricate blooms.

Sometimes we just have to look closer for the beauty.

Yes it is. I discovered it after I got the macro lens. Lovely.

Loved your picture today. I'm new to photography but am finding that a macro lens is definitely in my future. On your recommendation, I'm signed up for the next Bloom class. Can't wait! Thanks for sharing nature's beauty the way you do.

Thats incredible...so delicate and beautiful. I always save my babys breath in tissue and place it on the limbs of my Christmas tree...gives the feeling of snow to a tree.

Exquisite!! I would never have thought this to be baby's breath. So creatively captured!!

It is amazing Mary! This looks like a wedding shot. I wonder if I photograph my babys breath if it will look this good?

Judy said...

You are right about it needing a macro lens to bring it to life! I have never seen the shadows in the petals before!
