I have been laid up this summer. Not able to use my right arm for several weeks, I started by using my smallest camera (one that could be used with one hand) and then when I was able to use both arms and hands, I moved up to my next smallest camera but this one coupled with a device that allows a photographer to shoot objects just a few inches away.
Not up to moving around a lot, I photographed in my backyard.
A painter for most of 6 decades, this concentration on the small and the close is new. Today I thought I would show a few of the better closeups.
My favorite painting teacher, Nick Marsicano, when he was in his last decades, stopped painting large canvases of nudes and moved to smaller paintings of flowers. The desire to make images remained - he just had to change his field of battle. Well so have I.
Macro device (my birthday present from my wife).
The pictures (or as Neil Slavin would say, the pitchas.)
