02/26 – Macro
The 'macro' theme of this part of our B&W project got me thinking – macro (to me) = tiny or very close. Over the two weeks I took a close up look at lots of things by way of my macro lens and converter – parts of animals, vegetables and … minerals! Curly hairs and outstretched claws on our cats, a finely chopped onion, many other objects came under the ruthless scrutiny of my lens.Because a macro lens is brutal in what it will reveal. Do you know how much it might put you off your food if you saw a tiny hair in the chopped onion? Or can you imagine just how many specs of dust are on the claw of a cat?
My submission today is something that caught my eye yesterday, in our kitchen which is still transformed into a building site during the day. I had to ask what it was as it was obvious that each of these tiny objects would be separated from the strip. They are (for those non builders among us) nails for a nail gun. And I was told that they make them in sizes as long as this but as thin as a needle. The pencil and nail punch are there to give an idea of scale.
