For last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post, “Structure“, I took inspiration from the photo example given of a close up of a leaf. It’s easy to forget about the little things that make up the big things or the structure of something. For example, the little veins in a leaf. So taking that example as a lead, I took a few photos of a hydrangea plant I have. I made use of a macro lens I got as a secret santa gift last year and took a few shots.
First, to give you an idea of what I see without looking too closely, here’s a photo of the plant.
Now a close up of one of the leaves. In this photo below you can see all the tiny lines and veins of the leaf. I didn’t even realize the tips of the leaf were pink before!
Lastly, when I think of hydrangeas, I think of big, beautiful, poofy flowers. I kind of always think of the flower as a whole and don’t stop to think about the fact that it’s made up of tiny little flowers!
It’s easy to forget about the little things that make up something or are part of the grand structure of something. I enjoyed this photo challenge because I discovered some things I had never taken the time to get a close look at before!
