Getting close at home

I have been invited to be a special guest host for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge. My theme is Close ups around the House.

If you have not come across CMMC before, every week Cee invites us to have some fun. The first Wednesday is macros, the second a colour, the third you pick a topic from her photo and the fourth she goes all alphabetical. If there is a fifth Wednesday, like today, the topic is up to the guest host, that’s me.

So today, especially for CMMC, here are close-ups of the things inside my home.


If you want more information on this challenge, go to Cee’s link to CMMC Home page for more information and if you have enjoyed today why not join Cee again next week, her upcoming CMMC topics are;

  • July – Close Up or Macro
  • July Color – Brown
  • July Pick a Topic from my Photo
  • July Alphabet – Letter K at the end in the word

Drops on a web

I am going to do another double photo challenge.
We have Terri’s Sunday Stills: Are You Ready for Your #CloseUp
and Sunshine’s Macro Monday 4

So far for Sunshine’s Macro Monday I have done a flower, a leaf and a bark with a spiders web, so I should follow my theme with water drops on a spiders web

and continue with more spiders webs and perhaps a spider or two to satisfy my close-ups for Terri. WARNING for those who may find spiders scary, the last photo is a close-up

Up close

The word prompt from Bren: Macro

You may have noticed I like to get up close to so many subjects it will be hard to pick a few for Bren’s Photo for the Week challenge.
