new experiments in "macro"

don't know if you really like these fake macro's or not but here [as previously mentioned] are some newer macro attempts....
[the one below & the last one are my fav.'s of this "batch"]

I especially love this one... don't know why.
Taking pictures just makes me feel... excited about my world. At least when I "let go" & I'm "in the moment" just enjoying Creation, & thanking God for making it.

Violent sky

I loved the way the clouds "rolled" yesterday. It was like "looking up at the ocean".

Painted so carefully. Seemingly just for me. Painted by the most fascinating & breath-taking mind [or intellect]. I just stared at it... feeling like a child, lost in an adult's conversation. After a while I became aware of 2 things... 1. How weird I must look, standing on the sidewalk, awed by the painting [& painter of the sky]... 2. feeling His smile that seemed to say:

The ones below are, quite obviously, where the title of this post comes from. I have only posted a few pix here [from the plethora of photos taken yesterday]. If I had posted others I'd have tried to convince you that there was no fire. The sky was "ablaze" last night at sunset... & [as usual] I was in awe of my favorite artist.

The one above just makes me think of God's glory peeking out from behind the "door of heaven". It was much more wondrous "in person" than it is in this shot. [maybe one day I'll get a DSLR camera. & be a real photographer like I feel my friends are]

I haven't posted for a while. I just have felt a bit "less than others" [or less talented].
...but that isn't why I do this. I don't really do this for you. I do this for us [that would be you, me, & Him]
maybe next time I'll put up more "experimentations in macro"

[a "frozen leaf"? or "leaves of ice"?]
My cousin is a bit younger than me. He's also a bit more savvy than me. I didn't realize that my camera had a sort of "built in" macro feature on it. [no one told me that's what that stupid flower icon meant... or I didn't know deAnn back then]

I like the melting wax here, & the reflection of the flame in the little pool of liquid wax.
I'm trying to relax on the Sabbath. I've created a Sacred Space. [I borrow this term, from Pastor Brian, & LW -my church] For whatever reason, candles are soothing to me. My sporadic-ness in my posts will be due to... well, trying to overhaul my entire existence. Which I'll post more in-depth, & at length, on my other blog.
well, it's time for a macro look at the inside of my eye lids...
