Yesterday I talked about a recent program on macro photography at our camera club. I prepared for that meeting by putting my macro lens on the camera and going out over a couple of days to get back in practice with it. The lens I use does not permit focusing any closer than about a foot away. We won’t be doing insect retinography with this lens because it can’t get that close but it does offer other possibilities at this kind of middle distance that I prefer.
What struck me was relationships between flowers. At an objective level there is nothing more there than the juxtaposition of two flowers. But images tell stories. We, as observers, become co-authors with the photographer in developing those stories. What stories do these images tell you?
