The previous post was a fun tongue-in-cheek set of macro images using tiny erasers. My wife buys them to use as prizes at the school she works at. I have a whole collection of Iwako Japense Puzzle erasers (http://www.iwako.com/IWAKO/shop/) (although the ones in the macro images were not Iwako) that I would really like to use in a series someday. I am drawn to the small figurines, not just the erasers but also the animal figurines that they sell at Michaels craft stores, see my Life of Pi tribute image with the tiger figurine. I can see the potential in all sorts of diorama type images that could be both humorous and socially poignant. Unfortunately, those are ideas for another day as I feel they need to percolate a little more before seeing the light.
Today, I concentrated on a little more serious macro photos of the abstract shapes of flower petals and leaves. I cropped all these to a square as I often do with macro images and created black and white versions of them to concentrate attention on the lines and shapes with the distraction of color (although the color versions can be quite stunning as well, I will leave those for another post.
