Much of my macro work takes place in and around the University of Nevada, Reno. It's where I go to school (finishing up my MBA this May!), and where I've called home for the last eight years or so of my life. I've met a lot of different, wonderful people through the university, and it's always held a special place in my life and heart. So when I'm walking down and through campus, I always seem to feel inspired to take out my camera. Macro shots are great, and I love the perspective it gives, which is one you wouldn't normally see. Unfortunately, this series happened to be mid-day, so the sunlight is a bit harsh. If I would have this set to do over, I would have definitely picked a different timeframe.
In addition to the routine beauty I find in taking pictures of flowers and other plant life, occasionally a surprise pops up. This time, a small spider was dangling from a flowering bush I was about to photograph. He stayed perfectly still for the ten or so shots I got at different compositions. It's experiences like this one that make me love macro work!
