Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny November 11, 2016 by scillagrace Having recently discovered my camera’s close-up setting, I am having a great time photographing tiny details. I still find that my camera doesn’t quite depict the way that I see the world — the awareness of the juxtaposition of what’s outside the frame with what’s inside, for example. And the colors and scope of a sunset and simultaneous moonrise. Where is the camera that can take in all that my eyes and brain and heart envelope? Non-existent. And that’s good because I’d hate to think humanity could be replaced by technology. Tiny Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
Great minds think alike. I used ladybugs also as my post for tiny. Cheers!
Tiny…and plentiful! Around the farms, these little guys are swarming this time of year.
They have been streaming into my outer siding to hibernate for the winter.
Yup. I hear ya.
Nice selection, Scillagrace. Love the water droplet on the flower.
Thanks, Sue! If I had a real macro lens, I could get the reflection in the droplet even larger. Saving my pennies for that purchase! 😉
These are simply astonishing pics! Especially love the top one!
Thank you, Tom. I’m happy to have found that pre-set place on my camera. It comes in handy!
It is really exciting when you discover a new camera function!! Your pictures are lovely!! I enjoyed them a lot!! 🙂 Marianthi, xo
I have a lot more to learn about my camera and really haven’t given it enough time. But I’m having fun anyway! Thanks for your visit; so glad you like these pictures!
It sure takes lots of hours of reading & practising but is so much fun!! 🙂
Hear! Hear! Scilla. I think I’m relieved when I pull back from the camera sometimes and take a good hard look … a reality check of where I am.
Perspective rooted in the real world is a necessity.
the ladybug is soooo cute on that bed of flowers! Loved it! and those tiny flakes of snow (?) at the end too! Is it already snowing where you are???
No, not yet. I took that shot on Valentine’s Day at a Nordic ski race I was helping run for my work.
I like that first photo a lot.
It’s a tiny world, for a ladybug. Thanks!
I really like what you said here “Where is the camera that can take in all that my eyes and brain and heart envelope? Non-existent. And that’s good because I’d hate to think humanity could be replaced by technology. ”
I just got my first camera, and I was thinking how on earth do I capture those things that fascinate me.. I guess this is consoling because you’re right. There’s no way to do it.. maybe with the best skills, we can have amazing photos.. but to capture everything in its entirety and how it affects our soul… is something just really personal.
Exactly. And the desire to try is Art and Love and Humanity: a sacred thing that brings us all together on a deeper level…if we let it. Keep taking pictures and remember that they’re not just pictures. They’re personal, like you said. Enjoy your camera!
