A Macro shot a day....


Ok.

Karin at Orange Flower (you might have to grab the link from my blog roll as I have not yet worked out how to insert the link to the site here!) has come up with a great project, shoot a picture a day with your camera in Macro mode.

Frankly I did not even know there was such a thing as macro mode on my camera. I am a point n shoot kinda gal. I have been looking to learn to consistently take a decent photo. It's not a skill I was born with.

Thank god I live in the digital age. I definitely would have wasted alot of cash on film and processing in the pre digital era!

Anyhoo I digress. Here is my first attempt. I just pointed and shot. No adjustments. I will see what I can do in that department in the coming days.

I quite like the texture of the floorboards and feel that the little fella just fits within the rule of 3. The pic is a bit grainy though. Not sure why. Maybe thats the whole idea of Macro.
