52 Frames: Macro

Shooting macro images of flowers is always fun and I did some more this week before the blizzard of heat took Merida (42C today; perhaps 43 tomorrow). They will come later.

The submission finally made was of Ivy, La Bestia. She is a terrible model but her eyes fascinate me.

52 Frames.com submission for "Macro".  La Bestia looked at me directly & was still for a brief part of a second.

The 2d choice may have been better. An ode to my non-existent OCD. My only compulsion seems to be to make messes and make the future worse than it need be. Keys are almost all in one pile in a plastic container along with the unused, color-coded tags. Since most of the keys are the same brand & size they will cost me a lot of time if I need to retrieve one.Macro_Keys_to_the_Kingdom

Fiats are best enjoyed as abstractions.  This mirror-shape called to me as I walked by.

52 Frames Runners-Up: Abstracts

It was a good afternoon of looking for abstract candidates in spite of the sweltering temperatures. They are going up this week to 100F (at least). I think usually abstractedly & tend to see similarly.

These are 3 of the runners-up for the 52 Frames week:Posts Paseo de Montejo

Domingo en el Parque/ Sunday in the Park

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It has been awhile since I enjoyed a leisurely street shooting stroll. These were from Sunday around the central square (Parque/Zocalo) of Merida. Tourism central but it’s late March, temps are around 95-100+F and international tourism has slackened.

This week for 52 Frames I used a perfect facade that, for the challenge of a shot “straight out of the camera”, worked w/o adjustments. This is an older shot I found to work on as well and like the mix of colors, shapes.
