Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge #34 – Close Up

This week, Ann Christine has asked us to look close

Close-ups ar not something I usually do, so I needed to get thinking!ll

This morning I put the macro adaptor ring on my camera, and here’s what I came up with from my breakfast table

Small detail from embroidered linen tablecloth:

…the remains of my boiled egg! :

detail of my just-emptied coffee percolator as the sun was streaming through:

And finally, the rim of my coffee cup:

Hope you enjoyed my closer look! I feel more creative now. Oh, and these were all handheld, next time I must dig the tripod out…

  1. Well – brilliant idea to photograph exactly where you are and what you do and see! Creative! Is it your embroidery? Lovely anyway. I think my favorite is the percolator and the sun shining through! Wishing you a bright Sunday!

  2. Thanks for a creative breakfast Sue 🙂

  3. I liked the coffee pot detail. I rarely attempt close-ups, as I am too lazy to set up any tripod or support. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Great close ups, Sue. And I enjoyed sharing breakfast with you!

  5. Good for you for digging out the adaptor Sue! Fun look into life’s simple pleasures

  6. I enjoyed sharing your breakfast Sue. Now that is what I call thinking on the spot!

  7. I’m very impressed by your breakfast tablecloth. Much more civilised than my meal settings. The photos are great; a nice perspective on everyday ritual.

  8. All that at breakfast time 🙂
