Macro Madness

I got some breather today after a devilish week that went by, including weekend. I had to slog myself out; so much so that I didn't realize when Pongal came and went by, when the solar eclipse happened. :-(

I took a break from my work for few minutes yesterday; wanted to do something else. So as usual, I started clicking things around at home. Here they are.

Macro shots with no flash and low light :-)

Blushing Bridegroom

Wanted to see how this would turn up having the lens so close to the object. Pretty satisfactory!!

Looks like a Jewelery advertisement :-D

Shells colored in pink

Where is Micky Mouse?

To keep things in place.....a glittery clip :-)

One cent has never been this beautiful :-) This was with flash on; the shadow is the spoiler :-(
Fire is so beautiful...lest you are away!!

    Made my day today. :-) Really really happy receiving these comments from an ace photographer himself.

    Honestly, these pictures are not as good as I wanted them to be. Clicked when I was really stressed out. I thought I could do much better...
