Black & White Sunday: Macro

Macro photography is not everyone’s favourite type of photography, but it is a very broad genre that has always fascinated me. The theme for this Black & White Sunday is not very specific. I only ask that you get close, very close to the subject of your photograph and you are bound to see things that your naked eye has not perceived. Take a photo and make it black and white and link to this post. The deadline is next Saturday.

Wishing you all a peaceful and productive Sunday!

  2. I really like using Macro but am spud useless at the ‘refinements’. I wouldn’t have thought to apply it to black and white, Paula, but it works well here in making interesting shadows within the pipes. Nice chilled Sunday music too. Have a good one πŸ™‚

  4. I do like this photo Paula. Taken as a macro, it highlights the geometry of the pipes beautifully. As well as showing us small details, it’s a great way of getting us to focus on what you want us to see.
    I don’t do much macro. The intention is there – I often pack my macro lens – but then the day runs away with me! Maybe I should try a day with only my macro lens! That would be an interesting exercise.
    Here is my offering for today: http://travelwithintent.com/2015/06/14/kiss-up-close-mosaic-mural-barcelona/

    • That would be a solution – to go for a walk only with a macro lens :). Thank you for commenting, Debbie and for showing me more of Barcelona’s treasures. I like it!

  5. Paula, very striking, your straws (yes, I cheated and read some of the other comments first, I would not have guessed they are not pipes). I think that pattern done in sepia would make a great fabric design! Best, Babsje

  7. Wonderful picture. The closer you get, the more abstract the picture is. Without a wider context, it could be straws, or pipes, or some other tube, but I love the pattern. I’ll publish my entry tomorrow morning. I’ve reached my post limit for the day πŸ™‚ Thanks for being such a gracious host.

    I’m still making friends with my macro lens and I’m sure there will be much more adventurous stuff to come as I explore the possibilities.

    • Thank you for this kind comment Marilyn. I will be happy to see your macro shot which I know will be a stunner. These are drinking straws. I have macro lens for three years now, and I only use it occasionally, but when I do it is with a lot of love πŸ˜€ Talk soon dear lady.

  12. These look good in B&W too. I’ll see if I can come up with something before next Sunday, but I have lots of stuff to edit and go through from the weekend, so I won’t make any promises. I hop that you had a great weekend too. Mine was definitely memorable !!

    • Hi Max, my weekend was pretty quiet due to tremendous heat, but the week was great with a memorable concert. Next weekend we have a holiday so we’ll go to the mountains for three days – not as high as the Alps but still beautiful. I can hardly wait. I’ll stop by tonight after gym to see what you have been up to πŸ˜‰
