"I have begun to truly appreciate the beauty in the smaller things, the most inconspicuous, that which often we take for granted. They too have their purpose. I hope that others can see the beauty in them through me, and in turn continue to be inspired... and blessed". That is an exerpt from my site that I wrote 2 years ago, but have only now decided to really take it literally and embark on a macro journey in photography. The macro images below were taken just about a year ago with my Nikon D200 and Nikon 18 - 55mm lens with +1, +2 and +4 close-up filters attached.

I will be putting my Nikon 24 - 85mm macro lens to much more use for this new macro journey, working on composition and sharpness. I think I am better equipped today than I was a year ago: A Nikon D300, a camera remote, a proper macro lens, couple remote triggers for flashes, and tripod, so I have no excuses! :D

I used the pen in this photo as a size reference. I found these mushrooms growing by the front wall of my yard.
