community Photo Challenge.



Macro is Close-up Photography

In this Challenge we are looking for Close-up or Macro images.
It is capturing something, usually small, at a close range, & seeing things at a different viewpoint. You can use a macro lens, macro settings...or just get as close as you can, but make sure your subject is in focus.


My husbands grandmothers tiny silver sewing thimble. I love this old thimble. You can see the scratches put there by the needle from her sewing. This old thimble is over 100 years old. Made back when sewing was an important skill, something to take pride in.

I Love it!

When I read what the topic would be I thought of my Grandmothers Tatting thread spool....but the Tulips were already bought.

Nice shot!
