Default Few macros

I haven't visited here for ages, so maybe better start again with some pictures. Here are some recent macros:

Three white flowers:

Portrait of strawberry:

Dunno what it is:


Every picture have been taken in nature, not studio. I used some piece of black paper, or fabric, as a background and for isolate subject from it's background.

Thanks for looking and C&C welcome
When the object that is produced, the photographic image has the ability to make tears come to your eyes; to inspire you to the point where you have to catch your breath, then nothing else matters.

I like this velvety texture, and also these colors. This is a strange "mood" for fruits and flowers pictures, very nice...

Ossi, the Strawb looks as thought it's been prepped by a food stylist - the top glistens so. The dandelion, witht he haircut I like very much.
