Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is macros or close-ups. Isn’t it amazing how a flower looks so different when you remove its colour (dark red, in this case) and zoom in?

  1. I have always loved taking pictures of flowers…but it’s like always in a hurry – just to capture the moment. Looking at your pics, and now that I am armed with a new camera, I’m inspired to take better pictures 🙂


    • Thank you, what a nice thing to say! My own semi-serious interest in photography was also sparked by a new camera. I enjoy learning more about its capabilities, and mine. 😉 Good luck!
