Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up

I’m a sucker for Close Up photos! It’s fun to get right in there, up close and personal, and show a different perspective to things we have seen many times before. It’s a chance to bring the finer details, that you’d normally not take much notice of, into the spotlight.

My favourite subjects to take ‘macro’ shots of are flowers and leaves… this is probably because I know they can’t run away from in front my lens! I need something that will stay still long enough for me to figure out what I’m doing!

I find the veins on a leaf or the texture of a petal are fascinating, and trying to capture them in an interesting way is always a challenge. But living in Tokyo with so many parks around, I’m never short of chances to practice. These are a few of the close up pictures I’ve taken in the past year.

  1. かまきりが あじさいの花の蜜(みつ)を すっている姿(すがた)が とても 印象的(いんしょうてき)です。この写真の 黄緑(きみどり)と 濃淡(のうたん)の青や紫(むらさき)の色彩(しきさい)が とても 新鮮(しんせん)です。
    それから 黄土色(おうどいろ)のもみじの葉の中に すこしだけ 緑が 見えます。
    季節の変化を 少しずつ かわっていく葉っぱの色で とらえるのは とても 興味深いです。
    植物を マイクロで 観察(かんさつ)すると、創造主(そうぞうぬし)の
    すばらしさを 学びます。そして すべての 生きているものを たいせつにする心を 育てます。
    セリアさんは 大都会の中でも 自然の美しさを もとめて 写真をとっているのですね。感激!
