As I often do when in a blank area – not knowing what to do with the week’s FSO topic, I Google it. Somewhere within all the thousands pages that come from a Google search is usually a word or a phrase that sparks my interest and clarifies the topic for me. First a definition of Macro photography – “…The classical definition is that the image projected is close to the same size as the subject….” and a search of ‘URBAN MACRO’ rewarded me with a complete group of photos on flickr.com. The clincher for me was visiting Pauline’s site – now I had the idea and went hunting in my archives for photos that might work.
All of these photos are from the Nova Friburgo area.
Ever seen the flower of a Banana Tree? Not Urban but forest – but very much a part of the surrounding area where banana trees (well more of a bush) grown wild in the forest.
