Macro Photographs

A Post A Day Photo Challenge – Jan 03 2015

Hi folks,

I am taking on a challenge to post a photograph every day for a full year starting on, New years Day.  Please join in by uploading a photograph of your own and leaving a pingback here 🙂

One of the things I love about making pictures is that you can turn the everyday into something pleasing.  I am a total novice at Macro photography but I picked these items off the ground as I walked the dogs this morning.  I took these shots just a few minutes ago using a standard lens with an extension tube and with just a small LED torch for lighting.  I hope you enjoy them.

I think adding a new skill to my photography repertoire fits nicely with this weeks photo challenge too 🙂

This is my first attempt at Macro Photography.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
