Macro Flowery Monday

lc1273



First, I have to fess up that this is one of those old, very old, fashioned hair dryers.  You guys are great guessers!! I picked it up at a rummage sale a few years ago for a quarter!  And I use it to dry my dogs off because it's quieter and gentler than an average hair dryer.  I keep it by the sliding glass door in the kitchen in the winter and use it to thaw out the door enough to open in the winter. ;)


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. :)

I suppose I could drag these out, but there are so many things to take a close look at that I’ll share them all and just overload you on flowers.

  1. Ah, what a nice, warm Macro Monday for me to look at! I wish I had some flowers to photograph but they are currently being doused in snow again. *sigh*

    Happy Monday, I hope you have a wonderful week!! *HUGS*

  3. These are so cool. Flowers looks so strange so close up ... like weird alien planets. Love this!

  4. Not sure why, but I think #6 is my favorite. Although the orange one right after it looks practically edible. Like a Dreamsicle or something.

    And boy did I ever miss the boat on the hair dryer! Guess I have medical stuff on the brain lately or something. Or maybe it's just that my Spring-O-Meter (sinuses) are pegged these days from the pollen.

    I feel positively pedestrian in my offering for this week by comparison!

  9. I have to get something so I'm able to do macro photography. I tried to take a pic of a bee over the weekend, and it was out of focus. I was so disappointed.

    Unlike your pics, which are great. I see you're doing flowers. Has spring come to Wisconsin? :)

  13. It's great to see all these blossoms. I was thinking it should be spring...although the weather people say we're going to get 6 to 8 inches of snow today.

  14. As always your pictures totally amaze me!! Gorgeous micro shots!
    I have to ask what lens did you use?
    And also can I ask your opinion on what lens you would shot with if you were shooting wedding pictures?

  24. Hi Lisa,
    Beautiful close ups of those flowers! I really like the orange one. It's the third one from the bottom. All those stripes, who would have thought a flower had stripes. Mine is posted. Have a great day!!
