I’ve been a hobby photographer for over 25 years. I was first introduced to photography as part of my grade 11/12 art class and I’ve been in love with it ever since. I enjoy photographing nature, wild life, pets, people, flowers, still life, macro, landscapes, cityscapes and weddings,

    Clever title. Now I’ve got that song in my head! Good and creative macro.

    Forgot to mention how much I like the one horizontal red piece of yarn.

  • Thank Jan! Sorry about putting that song in your head. I’m glad you like the one horizontal red piece of yarn. I almost cropped off, then realized it adds character to the shot, like if the red ball just rolled in.

    Great shot Stephen. I like the horizontal piece of red yarn too. It leads your eye into the photo.

    Excellent still life photograph! Really great depth-of-field and color accuracy! This is beautiful macro work!

  • Thanks Gene! Glad you think it excellent. My Rebel XT is down in need of repair or replacement, neither which I can afford at this time. So for time being I’m using my wife’s PowerShot A570. This photo is my first at still life with it.
