Macro Photography - Into the Wilderness

Macro Photography is an accent of my vision - discovering and exploring, crafts painted in light in a sliver of time. How our eyes drawn to? How can that be used to move intentionally direct the eyes through the frame? Macro photography is one of those joys and terrors of what i love.

This is very much like a Pokemon game; you walk around the path, bump into life in the undergrowth, these are the alderman of hidden beauty; they are spectacular in brevity macro, before you know it, it flew off, it takes tons of patience and skills to capture brief moments of magnificent and turn them into lasting magic!

Almost as soon as i began to explore, to read at all, i began to amaze by the formidable life in the undergrowth. For most i embrace the abundance life of tropical country co-exiting with such amazing creatures. Likewise, as much as trying to capture the quintessence of life in the undergrowth, to enhance photo collection, to expand new found species- Legendary Creatures!

Working out a dream, a road trip into the wilderness in search of these lovely critters! Travelled a few thousand miles; friendship, great foods, chatters and crawlers!
