A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography


Week 34 – #42. Simplicity

Too often I fail to zoom in on a flower to show its softness and “simplicity.”  Although it was positioned perfectly in front of an uncluttered background, I added a soft texture to my final edit.#42 Simplicity_MNM7295





Week 14 – #9. Close Up/Macro

This beautiful rose was basking in the afternoon light along the banks of the Tennessee River and was perfect for a “close up/macro” shot._MNM4645-Recovered



Week 41 – 17. Macro/Close-Up

_MNH7271When I saw this tiny flower, I pulled out my “macro/close-up” Tokina 100mm, 2.8 lens and focused with the hope of getting the stamens in focus.  After trying several times, I managed to capture this photo.  I have no idea what the name is of the flower so if anyone knows, please let me know.



7. Shadows

While walking through Jungle Gardens last Monday, I snapped off a red blossom from a hibiscus bush and placed it behind my ear hoping I could use it in some way in my photo challenge. Finally, I saw a huge palm leave, laid the blossom on top of it and as I looked towards the sun, I knew I had found my shot. I loved the shadow effect it made.
