Sunday Stills~Macro Pics

~If I work at being happy, it usually works.~
~Ella Sommers 1898~

Macro shots is this week's challenge at Sunday Stills.

Ed was givin' us a break from outside shots because of the frustrating weather most everyone is experiencing...but my indoor lighting skills suck...so between rain showers, I went back outside.


I Used to be Purple



My garden is all bare, but I hadn't snipped off these chive heads and they were about the most interesting thing I could find! They're so ugly, they're almost pretty!


Last Summer I Was Pretty



Check out more macro shots by going here in the comments.

Actually, I thought you might post some winter vegetation, and I'm not disappointed. Pants in winter have a whole different kind of beauty.

Cheyenne said...

Maia said...

Nuzzling Muzzles said...

Great texture, and that first photo has such an appealing design with all those stems.

Great winter vegetation..do you find that the chives re-seed all over..I even have them growing in the woods. Nice shots:)

Ed said...

I like them, great shots..:-)

Rhonda said...

Yeah, even dry winter things have a beauty. It's in the shape and texture. :)

Weird how they look so pretty even though they're dead and dried up. But of course, folks like to use dried flowers for decoration, so it's not to strange. I think I like the color the best and the interesting texture. That first one could be enlarged and framed and placed in a bedroom. It has a calming feel to it.

Nice job!

I do better with outdoors shots too. This time of year mine tend to have lots of snow in them! Your chive head sure has a unique look for the winter! Good job!

Even in the winter, the plants know that black, taupe, and white make a perfect ensemble :) nice shots!
