I've had fun with photography for many years, and I especially enjoy macro photography. Whenever I'm on a trip, I keep my eye out for interesting subjects and textures. You should see some of the strange looks I get when I'm standing about 6 inches from a wall taking photographs of stucco, wood, or bricks. I get even stranger looks when I spend time taking photographs of the floor. Anyway, I keep a folder on my computer full of macro shots that make good desktop wallpaper. Here are four "natural" shots of leaves and flowers that I thought you might enjoy. All images have been resized to 1280 x 1024, and they're around 275KB each.
As a point of interest, the first photograph (palm leaf...oops, Ravages points out that this is most likely a Banana leaf) was taken in front of Ernest Hemingway's home in Key West, Florida. You'll notice that it's the same image I've used for the header graphic of my blog.
Let me know if you'd like me to post more of these. I have quite a few.
So, that leaf one ended up in windows vista? Congratulations
I particularly like the Gerbera Macro!
I'm in the process of putting together a site for a company called 'Gerbera', any chance I can use your image?
Beautiful, it´s so great. You need this. Thank you Swanson. You need to visite our City (Natal RN - Brazil). It's like your wallpapers.
