I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

the unseen series #4 - thread and needle

common household thread and needle.



The thread is a nice touch! It's amazing how a macro lens can make anything interesting isn't it?


The common made extraordinary.


Nice...if only I could see that well.


Nice! Perfect macro, and I love the colours!


WoW! Incredible detail!


Wow, terrific macro shot!

My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!


I love!! Your macro photos always have great great details. Love the reflection of the thread in the needle. Love the combination of blue en yellow also. Another great macro shot, dave!


A very good example of extraordinary detail of everyday things. They take on a whole new life when shot like this. Well done.


And quite an uncommon picture!

Wonderful Macro with great colors. Fits me perfect as it is blue and yellow (as our flag) and it was our national day yesterday :-)

That is a really cool macro shot! Also yellow string and blue background gives us the colours of the swedish flag :) Cheers!
