This is my first time participating in Becky’s challenge on THE LIFE OF B. Click HERE for more information. For September the theme is Pink Squares! She hosts a month long challenge with a topic. You can join in daily for the whole month, or pop in and out. Whatever suits you, your blog and your circumstances. Just remember the only rule is that your photograph must be square in shape!
This week’s Sunday Stills theme is “macro-anything.” Macro photography is also considered close-up photography. However, using a true macro lens yields the sharpest, tiniest details whereas a closeup may not show each detail. Since I only use my iPhone and I don’t have a macro lens to attach to it, I would call these close-ups!
I’m really feeling the end of spring and summer and the arrival of winter. I know and expect the seasons to change. Why, the changing seasons is the one thing I kept saying I missed the whole time I lived in Florida. Now, springtime was amazing here. Summer was fantastic here. Even Fall was beautiful — even though I knew what it was ushering in! And now they’ve disappeared. So, now that Christmas is over, bring on the Spring and Summer! But since I must be patient, I’m posting some of the flowers we have enjoyed at our new home over the past spring and summer seasons.
Although we haven’t yet gotten into the really cold and snowy days yet (coming soon, I’m sure), all the plants and trees around me are dormant (look dead) and I really miss the beauty (and the warmth) of spring, summer, and fall. So, to bring a little sunshine into this new year, I’m posting a bunch of the flowers we discovered here at our new house this past year. I have no idea what most of them are called. If anyone feels so inclined to enlighten me, please feel free to do so! 🙂
