«Macro Photography»

I've been playing around with the new camera. Here's a few images I took up close with manual focus. I've always liked macro photography. You can take a picture of a very mundane object and get an amazingly detailed picture from it. Click an image to view full. You're free to use these as desktop backgrounds if you wish.

This is a photo up close of the needles of an asparagus fern.

You can probably expect more of this type of photos to be posted here in the future as I find interesting objects. If you're interested in getting the original sized images (2560x1920), just email me a request for them at: [To stop spambots, you must have javascript enabled to view the email address]. Blogger sizes down large images when you upload them to a post.

EDIT: Full-original-sized images now available when you click to view full.

    The last image is especially stunning. Very nicely done....

  2. Very nice pictures. What camera did you get?

  3. @ Monique: Thanks.

    @ Looney: It is an Olympus SP-570 UZ. It's actually my dad's camera.
