Macro Monday

Taken in a field out in western Minnesota while out exploring some prairie.  Was going for capturing just this puff of purple and not particularly worrying about depth of field so it's pretty shallow and maybe the focus is questionable, but I still like this image.

Macro Monday

I wish I had a more season appropriate image to post today, but the truth is that I'm behind in processing old and new images.  This one was taken a couple of years ago in April at the gardens at Lake Harriet in South Minneapolis.  Happy Monday everyone.

A glimpse inside

I love cemetaries.  There's one on the corner of Chicago Ave and 46th street in South Minneapolis that I visit on a regular basis.  The place speaks to me.  I've photographed the pattern on this door many times (see the post from 6/28/10).  One of the times I was there recently I turned around for one last look before I got into the car and noticed that if I stood on my toes the glass was less milky and you could see inside.  It was like discovering secret treasure.  I have many images of the inside of this small monument and continue to shoot it each time I go -  just in case there's something I missed the last time I was there.

Macro Monday

A piece of an iron fence in Grand Marais, MN.  The yellow in the background is from a clump of yellow flowers that were behind the fence.  Taken with a Lensbaby composer, single glass optic, f4, +4 macro adapter.

Oberg Mountain

The colors are gone on the North Shore now, but here's an image from a few autumns ago at the top of Oberg Mountain not too terribly far from Lutsen.
