Cocklebur

I found this cool looking cocklebur while going to the mailbox yesterday. I could tell by looking at it that it would be nice to photograph. I was mainly wanting to use my macro lens, but I ended up liking it a little further away as well.

I like the reflection of the first photo. I took the shots on my stove top, which is ceramic black. I've come to find it is a nice background for photographs.

This next one I did use the macro lens for. I love how it turned out. My husband said it looks like an alien whoha...lol. Yes, he is weird. It does look alien in a way though.

I'm not sure how many of you will like these shots, but I think they are interesting. Hope y'all have a nice night.

I really enjoy taking a closer look at some things we usually glance at or ignore all together. I think these two photos are interesting.

Yeah, I love doing macro shots of things. You never know what they might look like when you get up close and personal.

It is strange looking, but cool as well.

I do like that stove top for photos. That reflection is so cool.

Have you used the stove top for any flower photos? A red rose reflection would be awesome!

No, I haven't found any flowers to put n there yet. I've done it with leaves though, which was cool.

Never seen anything like this before. Is it common in your area?

AngelSharum wrote on November 13, 2014, 4:35 PM

Yep, this time of year especially. They are falling off trees everywhere.

I love noticing little things like this, too.

There are so many interesting things out there if we just pay attention.
