I’ve really been enjoying taking photos for this series, macro monday, but sometimes I have trouble finding good subject matter. Bugs move too fast. Windy days are awful for flowers. And who wants to see a photo of a button? I even told my husband that maybe I’ll just stop doing macro monday altogether. But, of course, like many things in life, it’s the difficult things that are good for me in the end, so I will try my best to keep challenging myself.
I decided I wasn’t going to take another a photo of a flower this week for some variety. We have a glass container in our living room filled with “little treasures” our family has collected from different beaches over the years — rocks, shells, dried seaweed, a little crab, and what my youngest son believes is sea glass — we threw it in the mix anyways just to humour him. I found this piece of coral and thought it might be interesting to photograph — something from nature, but not a flower like the daisy from last week. It wasn’t until I looked through the lens that I ironically saw this.
