I found this plant in Home Depot today and thought the lines of the leaves were so interesting. Looking down inside, I found a new leaf still furled up inside. I’ll call this a botanical abstract.

FEATURED in Extreme Close-Ups, July 16, 2011

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Excellent macro Dot and well captured..a fave


  • Thank you so much, Di. I think it’s time I get a better pixel point & shoot to carry around. This one does okay, but I can’t make a larger print, even after boosting the pixels in Paint (which I’m not sure I should be doing) once I do any significant cropping.
