FSO–Macro shots

I know I shouldn’t make excuses for my lack of ability but honestly, my camera just doesn’t do macro shots very well.  

I’ve only been out three times since Christmas – to a family reunion, for a beach walk and to take my car to the panelbeaters (mishap in the beach carpark).

And in the garden, the only thing of interest was cobwebs:

But, thank heavens there is a but, to see some wonderful macro shots, just pop over here to see what the rest of the team has come up with.

  2. The one with the cobwebs is excellent, to me. I am no expert. Just learning how to do macros on my new camera.

  3. All cameras are able to take good macro shots, just need so practice. These are well taken, love the web shot.

  5. I love the one with the flip-flops, it tells a story all by it self of what kind of day and mood and climate...

  6. I think you did a wonderful job of the photos. I particularly like the cobwebs. (Not that I like cobwebs..... they make me shiver) but your photo made me glad that I wasn't putting my hand in one!

  7. It's sickening to see you on the beach! Even I am beginning to find our snowy winter tiresome. A white Christmas is one thing but a white November, Decemeber, January (and forecast for Fenbruary!!) - Ugh.

  9. Pauline... I loved the comment about the "panel beaters", it really tickled me. =D I have only ever heard them called an auto body shop (and they do charge you money)!!! I love the fishing rod and the toes in the sand because you have been visiting our Canadian sites and you have seen Steven's ice, Elaine's snowscapes and my woollies. Brrrrrrr... warm sand looks awesome!!! Thank you for sharing a laugh and a piece of summer. =D

  10. Actually the rod and reel shot is your best 'macro' shot in my humble opinion. Very well done!
