Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign Mr Linky. Don't forget to visit each other. :)
Browsing in my grandson’s bedroom, guess what I found!
Very nice! I've never really noticed the texture of a starfish before. That's a great photo.
Amazing! I don't think I would have thought this was a starfish if you didn't tell me.
Up close and personal!
Lisa, as always amazing pictures. I just love this starfish. Be sure and check out a blog post I did tonight on one of the photographers who visited my blog today -- Robert Miller. I have a picture link to his slideshow. The scenes are so beautiful and breathtaking, I know you will enjoy them.
Amazing close up! I presumed it is no longer alive?
Oh I sure hope I am not in big-time trouble. I posted a Macro Monday photo for my friend, Linda. I have been after her to post this, and so I just posted it for her. To see her hound dog picture titled "The Howling," you will need to scroll down the sidebar. It is posted right above the Blogroll. Be sure and check out the rest of her blog too. She is a gifted artist, writer and photographer (as well as a tracker and true animal rescuer/lover).This is one of the hounds she uses for her tracking in Sacramento. They were driving along, and he decided to start this typical hound howling. So at a stoplight, Linda turned around with her camera and got this wonderfully funny picture of him. I think it is just great! You know, I think I can see his tonsils in there too.
Lisa, I would have never guessed what the first photo was, if you'd posted it alone.
Starfish are fascinating creatures to watch in the water. When they're wet their texture is soft and rubbery feeling and then get dry and rough as it dries out. Very cool picture!
I never would have guessed that first picture if you didn't identify it! Terrific pictures, Lisa! Happy Monday!
Amazing ! I first thought it was the skin of an albino crocodile, but that you won't find in your grandson's room I suppose !
Wow, they look really neat close up!
That's amazing - it looks like something beaded. Very cool shots, Lisa.
Wow! Gotta love macro! I just love all the beautiful detail! It's almost as though you can touch/feel the texture...right out of the photos!
Very cool. I've never seen a starfish this close I'm sure!My Macro Monday post is atMore of Me - EG
That's a complexion built for survival!
Looking through a macro lens feels like you have entered a whole new world! Love your photos:)
Pretty! I love decorating in a beach theme in the summer. I just can't leave it out all year or it depresses me in the winter!
Love that shot!
Now that's what we call a stunning macro shot with incredible DOF. Awesome
Cool shots. The texture really comes through with the macro lens.
These are wonderful. I like the things you take close ups of! Well I love close ups.....
My first link went to an older post. (I am technologically inept!) Lisa, if you want to delete the first link that's cool. The one for today is the second "Jennifer".Sorry! I'm a dingbat.
Reminds me of a lizards tail. Very cool!
That is neat!! i never really knew how cool looking they were or how intricit the pattern was!! I so love your camera and how you take your pictures!!
Lisa! I love macros!!! I hope you don't mind that I come by here more oftenly from now on, I am as much as a photofreak as you are :D I can't afford a dslr yet though *sigh*
I love the textures. Perfect shot for Macro Monday. Have a wonderful week.
I love the starfish shots - umm...can almost smell them. I spent many hours at the docks in Santa Barbara Ca. mucking about the piers while our boat was moored there - that's all we did for fun was play with starfish, then put them back in the water......they do have a certain charm about them.
I have one in my bathroom, but I think mine is smoother. You have great texture there!
Very fun! I got a fish eye lens for xmas and have been playing around with it. I've found that if I attach it to my wide lens that came with the camera, I can get way closer than without it, although I don't necessarily think it gets any closer than my zoom lens on macro. I remember you mentioned using a fish eye for macros (or I imagined it. :o))If so, how do you use yours? Thanks, ~R
That first image is so cool! I thought it might be a beaded something-or-other. Nicely done, as always, Lisa!Lovin' Macro Monday,Cameo @-->-->---
these are GREAT! though i'm happy more comfortable seeing the starfish in this "dried" state than if it was still alive (with the spasms created by their tube feet)... now, i wonder what other treasures we can find in your grandson's room? :)
Okay, I just went to the Adorama website and ordered a set of macro filters for my 85mm prime lens. I just couldn't take it anymore. So in 7-10 business days (or probably sooner based on my history with them) watch out!These are fabulous! And I really gotta try this out.
I would have never guessed what it was without the second photo.Very cool!
Very kewl closeups of this starfish ;--)Hugs and blessings,
