Today I walked into my my garden and didn’t got my camera with me. The first thing I saw was a big bee in the calyx of a flower. I ran into the house to get my camera but the bee was gone when I came back…. but almost immediately I noticed this beauty…

Bob is especially interested in ‘the soul’ of the things without one, the expressiveness of the lifeless, the essence of material….. macro photography, ‘things’ in particular.
‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…
