  6. Yes, yes! What Bo said! I am commenting here, but it’s about your entire blog. Love your images and the quotes with them. Totally agree with the idea that art is at your feet if you just look closely enough.

    I love, LOVE this photo. You are truly gifted.

    I have just recently discovered the joy of photography. The quote you shared expresses it perfectly. There’s just something about looking through the lens that makes you see familiar things in a new way.

  8. Very nice photo! Great example of what macro photography can achieve!
