Whoa… inspiration just struck all of a sudden! Must’ve been a weekend thing. I got home from work this afternoon, walked through the backyard and noticed my veggie plants have grown. So, I thought, what better thing to do than grab the camera and start taking a few macro shots, eh? Uuh, dinner can wait! Haven’t done this in a while, I was too excited to eat!
Macro, by the way, is my favorite medium of photography. Not that I’m any good at it. But I like it in a way that it attempts to give focus, even justice, if I may, to the seemingly insignificant. Unearthing and accentuating the beauty of objects we tend to overlook or miss in our everyday life… there is something powerful and poignant about it. If you can manage to discover, that is. It’s easy to look, but difficult to discover. The intricacy of these often trivial entities can disclose fascinating revelations. It can even be life-changing, if you will. And that’s the adventure of macro photography, I think. To me, it is discovering what has always been right in front of you, or… simply learning to appreciate the little things in life.
So anyway, some of them sucked as usual, but some turned out to be good enough to keep, I guess. That also made me remember the other pixel plays I’ve done in the past that I took down from the website, for reasons I don’t remember.
Anyhow, since I wasn’t doing much tonight, I thought I’d put it back up, for what it’s worth. And I’ve added a few items to the collection as well. Hopefully, I’ll get inspired more so the collection will continue to grow. But juggling between photography, music, web design, cooking and just plain being lazy… it’s tough to give a 100% attention to any given activity anymore. Oh well…
Meanwhile, you can check it out. It’s on this website. Somewhere! Go find it 🙂 Hope you like it.
