"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

Moments Of “Zen” In Macro.

And those moments of pure “Zen” were pretty much experienced the past 4 days while shooting down along the coastline of South Carolina.

I have been constantly shooting subjects for my “In Their World” series, searching for those images that are in line with my feelings on how I choose to see their world, and maybe opening up the thought process for the viewer of those images in terms of thinking for themselves about how those smallest of creatures view their own world.
But I have discovered that it is hard for me to write about how I look at their world, how I see and observe their world, what roots I have established in the past and the hopeful outcome of future growth coming from those roots.
It is hard for me to explain it, … it truly is!
Maybe I have arrived to a point to where the images I create in this series will “say it all for me”.
I have asked myself many times already, “Can this series of images tell a story on its own?”
Am I thinking way to much? : )

I spent 4 days on the coast with total focus on creating images for this particular series.
There were many of those “Zen” moments while shooting.
There was total happiness with what I was doing, and everything seemed to come easy for me.
Even the dragonflies, lizards, crabs, butterflies, … all seemed to be at ease.
The waters within the marsh seemed to caress everything in the area, and it almost seemed that everywhere I looked, the waters were coming to me.
It was like a family gathering, and I was not overlooking anything.
Everything, even with my way of thinking, seemed so simple.

Then, … I remembered this Japanese proverb.

“In Their World” – Series

With this image, I will not explain anything.
One who has even the most limited of knowledge in photography should easily be able to figure out this basic technique.
It is a straight shot, and on a beautiful morning.
Composition is most important of all, and although not everyone’s cup of tea, … it suited my tastes.
Hopefully, it will say something.

Thanks for visiting, and listening.
