Thematic Photographic 107 - Closeup


One scoop
Toronto, ON, June 2010

You see things differently when you position yourself closer than you otherwise would. While doing so may make you look a little funny - composing this shot in the middle of a busy brunch gave more than a few guests pause - it also lets you turn the ordinary into something a little less ordinary. In the overall scheme of things, the picture always wins.

I really need to spend more time sticking my lens within touching distance of stuff. Maybe this next week with give me ample opportunity to do just that. Maybe it'll give you a similar chance as well.

Your turn: Take a closeup picture - or two, or three, or... - of anything you want. The weirder the better. Post it to your blog or website, then leave a link in a comment here. For further fun and inspiration, visit other participants. Here's some background on how Thematic Photographic, our silly little weekly photo thing, works.

Closeup - I try so hard and seldom find something special, but I think I like my first Closeup photo!

At first I thought it was a picture of clouds and then I noticed the spoon!

Now I want ice cream!

I finally got my close ups posted - I was up close and personal with some rather attractive birds at the weekend.

I don't think that is ice cream (although just thinking about ice cream makes me want some) but I'm not sure what it is. It looks fluffy and fun!

I have an unidentified fuzzy visitor
