Tiny Worlds | {The Serenity Project}

Wherever we live, our family has always joined the Botanical Gardens. I love having a membership because we can visit whenever we want, and spend as little or as much time as we want there each visit.

We visited last weekend and had the place to ourselves! What a treat on a weekend! Yes, it was a little chilly, but not too awful. It was a little breezy and overcast, but still a beautiful day for a walk.  It was such a lovely morning, with the people I love most in the world.

I brought my macro lens with me this time. Usually at the gardens, I try to take many photos of my daughter, but this time I really wanted to focus on macro. Turns out when my attention is directed somewhere else, she ASKS me to take photos of her! So I took  a couple. But most of my photos that day were macro images. It’s so fascinating what we see when we take a closer look at the world! This isn’t a season of blooming flowers or beautiful leaves; everything is pretty brown. But still, tiny treasures could be found everywhere. This is one thing I love about photography in general and macro specifically–it forces us to take a closer look at the world, and to see possibilities around us.

And one of my daughter, finding some serenity!

The Serenity Project is a collaborative photography project. The participating photographers aim to capture a sense of peace and calm with their imagery. Please head over to Wendy May – Scottish Photographer to see what brought her some serenity this month.
