Laura Macky Photography

Journey of a body on this earth



I’ve always enjoyed taking close-up shots but lately I’m really loving it.  Just before the light was completely gone I took this of a rosebud in our garden.  I loved how the unopened rosebuds surrounded this one beautiful rose and how it exists uniquely by itself while the light slowly fades away.   And throughout the night it still stands beautiful even when we can’t see it.
