K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Close Up Photography!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This past Friday, Dale provided the prompt for this week’s ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’. He wanted to see closeups- photos of something -anything really, zoomed or bought in close to provide ‘microscopic details’. As he also mentioned, any and all post-editing is highly encouraged.

Heading over to Dale’s post on the topic, I instantly got what he was after, but had to dig deep into my own archives to come up with a worthwhile challenge response!

To see the amazing images Dale and his daughter Audrey submitted, here’s a link

I chose, after careful deliberation, to go with a series of ‘macro’ or closeup photos I took at the Botanical Gardens here in San Francisco recently. One bulb-like plant encased in early morning dew (not sure of its name?), one honeybee hard at work, and one spectacular looking iridescent green fly at rest long enough for me to snap a few shots.

I’ve been favoring the ‘slideshow’ option WP gives us for using groups of photos in a post of late. I learned after the first usage you can actually pause the show to look at a single image at your leisure. (thanks, D.)

So, there you have it; my answer to the K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’. Want to join? It’s easy:

Create a post with ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’ in the title. Make the post this time about closeup photography, pingback to either Dale’s or my post, and don’t forget to add the tag #CosPhoChal to your post’s tags and you’re done! Easy, right?

        1. I’m curious about the new tech of lenses for smartphones. I’ll have to keep my eyes on those to see if anything becomes available for my old phone. Sounds like a worthy experiment!
