I've been asking myself lately why
most all of the photos I take are macro. Or if not macro, at least close-up (like this photo).
And here's the conclusion I came to just now as I was outside photographing this flower: Everything seems more interesting up close. When I take landscape shots, I'm bored by them. I think there's so much more to see when you look close. And for me, photography is, in part, about capturing moments that people don't notice. As a whole, most people will see the Black-Eyed Susans outside of my house. But unless you were looking close, you'd never have noticed the baby bee (or whatever that is...) on the petals.
In other news, have some E.L.O.
