"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

Wild Rose Abstract – Rosa acicularis

When one speaks of another as “having a great eye” in their photography, should it not be said “having a great mind” instead?
After all, … the eyes are nothing more than a tool or a extension of the mind, ….. right?

Maybe it has been discussed before and I am already thinking way to much in this new year of ours! : )

The image below is a small grouping of wild rose leaves, … “Rosa acicularis”.
It is a simple composition, and by backing off on the focus it then gave the overall feel that I was looking for.
