Ready for My Close-up
I forgot to read the rule book.
Seems you are supposed to go to tourist spots—such as Alcatraz—to ooh and aah over the historical features. I tend to twist around, lean over, and bend into awkward positions to take detail photographs of odd spots.
Since my discovery of DSLRs, I’ve been collecting pictures of unexpected and unusual microscopic worlds lurking on ledges and rocks and branches. I’m fascinated by the minutiae that exist under the focus of my zoom lens.
Sure, I take photographs of the big stuff and family too.
But, these close-ups are my little treasures. I take these pictures just for me.
