Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro

With the ubiquitous phone cameras accumulating an over-abundance of photos, joining in with the Phoneography challenge, over at lensandpensbysally , is almost a given.

Here is my macro submission! Cropped but no other filter applied.

Taken with my new Galaxy S4 note

feathers (2)

and the original for comparison, (and cuteness) :


Hello there!

Macro photography –

revealing in its detail,

stunningly artistic in its form

and surprising in its (original) format

Something to Ponder About


About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  9. Very Pretty Polly. 🙂 Would have never guessed the source of macro image. I did that with turkey feathers a while back.
