This one is in my garden and I just think it’s a beauty that’s why I took the photo. A friendly ‘RedBubble- person’ told me this is a New York Aster (for those who want to know..)

Canon EOS 60D, Tokina AT-X Pro D 100mm F2.8 Macro, total 64 mm extension tubes

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!”…

    wow – that is another stunning shot (in fact your whole portfolio is inspirational)… think I am going to try extension tubes on my macro lens, perhaps I will work through your photos for more ideas…..
