A Bed of Leaves

There’s only one photo this week, but it’s a higher-resolution image than normal so you can zoom in to see the details.
Clicking on the image should take you to a different page where you can click again to make it larger (be sure to come back to read the rest of the post). This photo is from a bed of leaves that’s been slowly growing, underneath some bushes in the yard. I was intrigued by the variety of textures and shades of brown, contrasted by the one leaf in the middle.

Macro Mystery #29 reveal:


Trying Something New:

I’ve enjoyed learning what different objects look like up close while making the macro mysteries, but it’s probably not as fun for you to have to guess what they are. This week I want to try something new and see how it goes:


1. You can leave a comment, suggesting an object you would like me to take a macro photograph of.


2. From your suggestions, I will pick an object (or an object as similar as possible) to photograph and share on the next blog post.


So you have an idea, this is how close the macros I can take are – approximately eight millimeters wide:

A reference size for the macros I can currently take – 8-mm wide.


I’ll start this week – peanut butter! Here’s what it looks like (Jif brand, if that’s important to you):



What objects would you want to see up close? Please make some suggestions below for next week!
