More evidence of my infatuation with the macro setting

Yes, yes, more new photos featuring the macro setting. I can’t help it, I like what it can do.

This is a plant that I park next to at work every day. And everyday I love how firm and waxy and green it looks.

This guy was hanging out one morning, enjoying the heavy marine layer (known to the rest of the world as fog).

He obviously had places to be.

This lovely lady I snapped one morning when N.C.’s line for coffee at the Starbucks by his work was inordinately long.

This one too…I wish the top edges of the flower were a little more defined. I’m sure I could fix that digitally, but my Photoshop skillz are somewhat pathetic (right now, I do very minimal work in Photoshop. Images you see on my blog currently have maybe some auto levels adjusted, or auto contrast. Camera first, then Photoshop).

Are we tired of roses yet? Ok, how about another flower?

What is it about water droplets that look so cool? These flowers…also outside my office. My coworkers probably had a good laugh at me crouching around taking these photos.

Ooh, artsy…or is it just out of focus?

Ok, enough macro shots for today. I promise, I’m going to try and learn other settings on my camera soon.

But I have a feeling the macro setting is going to be my go-to for a while…hope you don’t mind.

It’s not fog.

Southwest people. Sigh.

Ok, I guess technically fog is a byproduct of the marine layer (thanks Wikipedia), but blame my ignorance on the local weatherfolk, who tend to make them synonyms.

Wow that is absolutely amazing. I love the macro setting on my camera too but somehow it doesn’t seem that intense of focus. Lovely photos.
