Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny

Having recently discovered my camera’s close-up setting, I am having a great time photographing tiny details.

dropletI 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.

  1. 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!
