Indoors and Outdoors

People who see me making photos inside stores such as the local Food Lion may think I am strange when I stand in front of simple displays such as this one with my camera pressed to my eye, getting as close as I can to get the composition I want. They may also think I am some company executive documenting the skills of the store’s produce manager. I don’t always have my camera with me when shopping but I often take it along just to be prepared to capture some image that may be interesting to me and hopefully others. As an aside, Apples are one of the products I buy regularly because I have one a day…hopefully keeping the doctor away, as my dear mother used to advise me when I was young. I peel mine by the way…do you? OK, how about close up images made outdoors. Here’s one I took the other day.


Again, like indoors at the Food Lion some person who might have seen me making this close up of a single daffodil flower in our back yard (they are really blooming nicely this year) may have wondered what I was doing down on my knees crawling up close to the flowers so as to get this one single bloom in the composition. I learned awhile back that when taking photos of flowers it’s best to position your camera in such a way so as to have a different view not normally seen. For example, many just take their photo looking down on the flowers, as would be normal. Boring, perhaps.

So, there you go, close up images indoors and outdoors. It all can be fun, you choose!
