“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” ― Albert Einstein
We had planned to go out of town for the weekend. On Thursday night, Wylie started limping. We took her to the vet to find she had a nailbed infection in one of her dew claws. We figured the trip would be too much on her so we opted to stay home.
DirtMan had recently bought me some extension tubes for macro photography, and we were itching to experiment. Since we couldn’t go out, I decided to bring the outside in to us. I roamed the yard and found a few specimens and then grabbed a few things around the house.
Macro photography shows us details the naked eye doesn’t see. It’s sort of a glimpse into a new world, or at least a different perspective of our everyday world.
See, I did “focus” on something this weekend!
We took lots of other photos, but I’ll save those for another day.
In case you’re wondering, Wylie is recovering nicely. She’s much happier now that we’ve removed the cone (to prevent her from chewing on her foot) from around her neck.
