Looking at Flowers through a Macro Lens

For people who have not a beautiful garden or do not have the opportunity to move around and to get to a garden it is a blessing that they may find the modern tools of the computer and internet by which the world can come unto their doorstep, in case they have enough money to pay for that internet.

For those who look forward to see those beauties it is a blessing that there are so many photographers willing to share that what is unreachable for them. With gratitude we too want to share the macro visions and that what others can capture to portray the beauty of this miraculous world.

Thanks to all those people who allow their articles and photo’s to be reblogged and for us to give so many more people the opportunity to come to know those ‘magicians’ who can use a camera so handy.

Leanne Cole is a Fine Art Photographer who specializes in Fine Art images of Architecture and the Environment. She has several Workshops and Services that are all designed to help you learn photography and how to use your camera to its best capabilities. Even when people can not come to her classes in Melbourne, she is providing ‘Online Photography and Editing Classes’.

When she is somewhere to share her art she uses the opportunity to make beautiful pictures which are also presented on her blog. She manages to bring the viewer in different moods by the different shades of light which may make her to create great photos. Have also a look at “Love to be by the seaside” where she shows how she can play with that light.

We may say that

the photograph is an object resulting from a physical and chemical process

but behind the lens of the camera has to be the very good eye of an artistic person to bring magic on the two dimensional paper.

  • Also

The object has been created but before it can be experienced by a viewer, it must undergo more changes. First and foremost, it must be developed and most likely printed. Finally, it should be mounted and displayed, which provides the photograph with context. All of these additional changes can add or detract from the object in various ways, but the original information present in the photograph (artistic manipulation not withstanding) has not changed. It is still a record of what was in front of the lens when the photo was taken. {A Photograph is an Experience}

  • Most photography not anymore the exchange of chemicals, but photons striking a silicon chip and are read as an electrical signal, which gets encoded digitally.

Though digital, this is still an imprint of the light that entered through the lens. The light initiated a physical process that resulted in a representation of itself, albeit in binary code. The light gets ‘encoded’ regardless if that information is encoded in silver halide crystals or in bits. So is this the essence of a photograph, information that can be decoded into a visual medium? {A Photograph is an Experience}

  • Without the experienced and qualified eye even the most expensive digital camera is nothing.

Luckily photography is still an art-form where we do need an artist behind the lens.

When you think you have nothing to say or to show

Internet

We spoke already about the magnitude of material that can get in front of our eyes to read. The internet may offer lots of interesting but also less or not interesting material. It all depends on what you might like or on what you find interesting, or not. What you might not think to be interesting lots of others may find very interesting. That’s one of the beauties of the internet; it helps connect people with similar interests who might otherwise never find one another.

On this platform we would love to find different people with different interests, but with some connection between all those fields of interests. We would love to find people who do not mind sharing their pen to bring something what might interest our readers or gets to the point which we would like to have internet visitors to have a look at.

As not everything published on the internet is a precious pearl of wisdom that shines a light on eternal truths, on this site we also know we are not able to present all beautiful pearls. But we do hope we can find some hidden treasures and to show little beauties. It does not all have to be masterpieces or very high literature pieces. Just some poems or scribbles, little interesting notes, from some one somewhere in the world, which might be interesting for an other eye somewhere else on this earth.

Some stuff presented here may be very serious or wanting to tackle some serious subject. But life does not have to be all that serious. We would like to put things in perspective, present dreams and hopes, but also look at our universe from the bright site of life.

Lots of people go to the internet for entertainment and are just looking for some fun, or something offbeat, and that’s fine; we can turn to the internet for entertainment as often as we do for education.

It’s okay to write something niche-y. It’s okay to write something light, or to post a photo or two. It’s okay to rant, and it’s also okay to celebrate. No matter what you have to put out there, there’s someone online ready to receive it.

Those who are not sure yet if they can contribute to this site, should not worry if they are interested in trying to create a nicer world for those around him or her. You live, so you are, and you have something that moves you and touches you.  On this site we are mainly interested in things that can touch people, in matters which can concern many, in matters of which many should take consideration, like what we are doing with our environment, what we do with this world, where we want to go in this world.

Just write. Don’t worry about a larger narrative. Don’t worry about engaging readers. Don’t even worry about your spelling. Just write — start describing and experience or sharing an opinion. You can edit or reshape later.

If you doubt you have something to tell, or when you think you could have something to tell but do not know how to start. Do not worry. A cohesive story might start to emerge as you write. Articulating your thoughts might lead to a lightbulb moment that takes you in another direction. You might just tell a good story, no larger point attached. Start writing, and don’t think about publishing. Just get your fingers moving.

And if you do not want to write as such, you do not have to think you can not contribute. Perhaps you like reading more. That’s very fine. But when you like reading more, for sure you shall be able to encounter interesting bits to read. So why keeping them all for yourself? Why not sharing those articles you like, with us? Why would you not reblog a good article. Here we offer you a place to do so.

You read blogs because you’re drawn to the personalities behind them, and that’s why others read your blog. If you publish something that’s a real reflection of you — whether it’s an in-depth analysis of a political issue or a series of haiku about your bicycle — your fans will read and like it. Give yourself some credit — people like you, they really do.

Others are also curious of what you might think or how you might feel. We are living on this earth with so many different people, that it is interesting to get to know how they think and how they act and react. Many may think there are many differences, but they would be surprised how much similarity there might be.

When you think you have nothing to say or to show, start believing more in yourself and not only trust yourself, but also trust those who want to hear from you and who want to read what is on your mind.

In case you are interested in social or environmental issues, relationships and peace-movements, our way of living, cultural affairs, the way we look at things, beautiful nature, language, pictures, than you are at the right address. Here you can find a place where you may ad your thoughts.

Let us hear from you.
