Close Up Photography: Nature

You can probably tell by now that I'm a nature, design and photo addict. My friend Jenny aka ljc has inspired me to take super close up photos of flowers. Here's a few I've taken, some along the canal path, others not.

Closeup of Cherry Blossoms

Closeup of Lilacs - at the Rochester Lilac Festival

Closeup of a plant in my yard (yes it's a little blurry - the iPhone needs better picture taking abilities)

Walk Along the Canal - Inspiration

Regular walks along the canal, have not only helped keep me in shape, de-stressed me and inspired some beautiful photographs but have woven their way into my house too. These painting are proudly displayed at the entrance of our house and bring the outdoors inside.
