Macro detail of the tip of a cinnamon stick. I was drawn to its curly “face” while cooking dinner tonight. Amazing how my new foray into macro photography gave me a new way of looking at the little things in life that are normally overlooked…

Shot in natural light, hand held, no post editing.

The world is full of magical photo ops…

All you need to grab them is a zest for life, an eye for the extraordinary and that trusty camera of your choice.

Raise the sturdy weight of it to your face … close one eye then … lower your finger upon the shiny black button… hold your breath then… hear that hypnotic click and suddenly, dynamite explodes! the stars collide! and maybe, just maybe you’ve captured a magnificent moment in time… How thrilling is that?!?

  • Hi there, Super duper Steve! Thanks for putting a big ol’ smile on my face with your wonderful comment!!! I’m so thrilled you dig this. :)
    Actually, the cinnamon was not used tonight, it just happens to be in a small glass on our counter all the time. I just love seeing it and smelling it. :)
    Spaghetti was the main course tonight…
