  1. Beautiful series.
    The fine details make these pictures so amazing.

  2. A beautiful wonder to view these sparks of nature through your camera lens and subtitles, Jane, and the quotes by Berenice Abbott were a wonderful accompaniment. I liked the subtitle to the Bird of Paradise at the end. And I especially liked the close look at the tiny flowers and details, like the stamens in the magnolia, something I have never noticed in my life. Also enjoyed the tiny hairs on the dewy succulent and the fiery coleus leaves. My favorite photo here was the perfection of the echeveria flowers in Photo #2, that gentle arch and the serene colors and identical blossoms. Always a joy to spend time here, my friend, thank you.

  8. Wonderful detail shots Jane! Did you use a macro lens for these? My favorite is ‘Echeveria Flowers’ … that curve and the colors are stunning!

  9. All fabulous shots as always Jane! I’ve not come across Echeveria before – it looks gorgeous! My favourites however are the first B&W magnolia (the monochrome makes the flower look almost sculptural) and the last, partly because of the image itself and partly the perfect title you have chosen for it 🙂

  11. Do you think I love these? You’re right! What a fine image that first magnolia is with the symmetry barely broken by those bits that are cradled by the lower petal. I’ve seen and admired that in magnolia flowers but I don’t think I’ve made such a handsome photograph. And there it is again in the other magnolia photo, also very beautiful. I think those are the anthers that fall off and land in the petal cups. This photograph really dances! The Echeveria flowers and their warm background are sweetly colored. Beach Rock Blues looks like one beach up here in particular – you can almost hear them knocking together. The camera’s “relentless fidelity” (great phrase!) is used to good effect in the wet succulent photo. The Coleus looks like it’s on fire but the next two images cool things down. I love ‘Paradise Lost’ – what a way to end! This photograph is on its way toward abstraction. Cool! What’s that little brown piece that looks like it’s flying through the air?

  20. Lovely shots of some of nature’s details, Jane. Mary Beth planted a coleus very much like the one you photographed and I’ve thought about making a few images. So much colr and nice shape to the leaves. I love the sedum too…Succulent reds.

    • Thanks so much, Steve. Your thoughts are much appreciated coming from a close-up aficionado. I used to love coleuses and when I saw this huge one in a public planter, it brought back my fondness for them. Such beautiful colors and patterns. Sedum…thanks for reminding me of its name. Glad you enjoyed these.😊
