Close to change

I decided to change things up a bit and include a macro shot (In case you haven't noticed I really don't like to post two similar photos in a row).
I liked the composition in this photo and how the light and focus on the dime in the bottom left brings attention to the detail.
I look at macro or close-up photography as a way to bring attention to things we normally overlook.

Great picture! You accomplished of bringing the overlooked into focus. Do you post on flickr? I like to include pictures in my blog and yours are certainly worth it.

Nice detail. I especially like how the light falls on the dime on the right showing off the patterns I hadn't closely observed before.

Very nice. I like the lighting. I'm like you--fond of posting a variety, instead of the same type of shot over and over. Makes your blog much more interesting. :-)
