The theme from Terri: #Macro or Close-up Photography; Is there a difference?
I enjoy getting in close to our world, exploring the small details in nature. Here’s a few photos for your enjoyment.
Macro – The face of a fly
Macro – The miniature world of fungi and moss
Close-up – Getting in close with an Ibis.
Close-up – with a Pelican
Macro – A rivet head on the Grafton Bridge
Close-up – the rust on a chain.
Close-ups or Macros? What do you think?
Oh bugger!!! I went 5kms to a neighbours place this afternoon and thought, oh good Paulas photo challenge of curves. That’s that’s right curves not S-Curves. Well I got quite engrossed in some of the plants in the garden and the old wagon (which will come in handy for later photo challenges) that I have a few photos from the afternoon for this challenge that I am going to use anyway (sorry Paula)
lets start with a sort of S:Curve. The wagon hook – almost an S
The chains on the wagon – C’mon…use your imagination…see the S
The wagon wheel with a tantalising rust and the lovely old wood with a bit of yellow fungus (he says trying to distract the viewer from the S:Curve topic)
Look! Isn’t the wagon wheel fabulous the way the wood and metal Curve in unison and the old wooden spokes are drawn into the central hub where the fungus becomes a lovely orange/red and the steel band fixes the wheel to the axle.
Aren’t the curves on the cactus wonderful. Their spectacular colours that just blend and enhance their curves.
At the end of the day, after a cup of tea and biscuit, on the drive home, the sunset was a superb yellow colour don’t you think (again distracting the viewer) as the sun set over the curves of the distant hillside.
I hope you enjoyed the day of (S)-Curves as much as I have showing my my curvy day 😀

I have a liking for rust photos. The tangled chain has so many colours and textures.
One of the things I like to photograph is rust…..sometimes it can be the whole object or just a piece. If you look hard enough you can find rust everywhere….it’s just what you see really isn’t it?
This was on an old wooden rail bridge helping to hold the structure together.

Or, like this, the chain on my girls old swing.
The old truck has been part of my street since the first day I went exploring. It has been dragged from place to place and now resides at the front of an old area that used to be a tip. I don’t think the brake pedal works any more.
Some of the old works that goods and materials were used to load the ships earlier last century at Evans Head.
I liked the contrast of the rocks on the headland and the steel post that was part of the whaling station in South Australia.
Or it could be the subtle patina on a small statue that gives a bit more to an artwork.
Rusty corrugated iron is found all over the country so it would be remiss not to have a quaint old shed wouldn’t it?
