Macro Photography <3

Macro Photography is absolutely a favorite of mine!  Up close, real, real close!

Rock the Shot, a photography forum (www.rocktheshot.com), is having a macro photography contest for the month of August & I’ve decided to throw one of my favorites into the mix.

This is quite simply a close up of a dandelion.  Taken from above, the depth of field is so thin that as the dandelion curves around into a ball like shape, those curved edges come out of focus.  Leaving me with with one of my favorite macro images.

My ‘soft dand’ somehow leaves me feeling calm and relaxed…almost soothed.  Weird, it’s just a weed!   😉
