Journey of a body on this earth

Purple and Gold


After walking around, looking up and almost falling over taking those architecture shots, I thought I’d give my knee a different workout by squatting down and taking a macro. Β πŸ™‚

  1. Your inspiration juices are certainly flowing! I can’t get over the breathtaking scene in your header! Then your “knee bend” photo is great too.

    I have one question for you. I am learning how to do overlays on photographs of my own, and I want to use that idea to give you credit for a photo I recently bought from you. Is it OK if I put Laura Mackey and your blog link at the bottom? πŸ˜‰

  2. Amazing colors and DOF on this new one Laura. Bravo!!!

  3. I have one other question for you. (I’m full of them today but will only ask this one more.)

    I have trying to find a photographer (lady) who lives and works in the Texas Panhandle. She has a lot of scenes from that area and other categories too. The problem is I cannot remember her name, and keep dragging up all kinds of other people’s photography blogs. Can you give me an idea of *how to search* given the limited information?

  4. WHOA!!! You new header took my breath away! Did you catch it for me? Hehehehehe And this flower, another breath taker! Awesome colors, framing and image! LOVED it, Laura! *thank you for not making me dizzy today* LOL ((HUGS))) Amy

  5. Love this shot! Colors – composition – DOF – excellent!

  6. I’m looking forward to spring so I can take similar photos. Yours is beautiful, nicely done!

    • Thank you very much Molly πŸ™‚ I’m glad you realized that I was amongst “the dead” in the nursery lol. I was happy to find this little gem amongst the brown.

      • Pretty much everything is dead here. And Spring can arrive pretty late, around May. However, there are some, like daffodil and crocus that will bloom somewhat early. I would love to find some crocus, they are beautiful flowers!

  7. Amazing how we can find such beauty around us!

  8. Whatever your knee might have to say in the matter, it was soooo worth it πŸ˜‰

  9. The color is really lovely Laura. I like the hints of purple in the lower left of the frame too, brings everything together. Ahh, macro images. I just love them.

  10. simply beautiful! I love these colors together!

  11. Love the colors. 8^) Your experiment in macro-genuflection was worth it, I’d say.πŸ˜„

  12. Sweet shot!
    Be careful with squatting! Following my arthroscopic knee surgery a few months ago, my surgeon said my knee should do fine… as long as I don’t squat much! Since I also enjoy macro-photography, that statement from the doctor was rather problematic. (I’ll be bending down more and kneeling more… without squatting.)

  13. Breathtaking flower and header.

  14. Hey Laura … I’m very pleased that you stopped and took this shot, just lovely πŸ™‚

  15. Oh the idea of your squatting knee gave me a shudder. You really mist be so much better. And your flower is magnificent!

  16. I love it and congratz on the squat!! It’s so soft and I love the blue light in the left corner!!

  17. That is some photo…. wow

  18. Nice one… The colour contrast works well

  19. A beautiful look into this tiny little world!

  20. Sweet! Did you use a macro lens? I am still debating what to buy. Also I forget that macro does not have to have everything in focus…..just what YOU want us to,notice most. Well done.

    • Thank you Shelby! Yes, it’s a Nikon 105. It’s my absolute favorite lens. The world opens up! And yes, that was the tricky part at first for me…figuring out how to do that, especially since I don’t like using tripods lol.

  21. #LoveLoveLove the header at the top of your page – (Thought I would start off with that)

    Beautiful macro Shot, #GorgeousDetails


  22. Now that. is one beautiful picture Laura .
    Glad that knee is holding up:-)

  23. Amazing ! Thank you Laura
