Macro Flower Photography

For a complete change from my normal scale of architectural photography, I did some macro photography of flowers last week with my wife Tracey Attlee.  Tracey was photographing local rose gardens in preparation for her presentation on rose photography to the Arlington (Virginia) Rose Foundation July 10 at 2:00 p.m., Merrifield Garden Center located at 12101 Lee Highway, Fairfax VA.  So, off I went with her, armed with my macro lens and close up filter.  Please click on images to enlarge.

I liked the mature rose with the rose bud. A friend comments that it looks very Japanese.

Had to hand hold my bee shots as they move about very quickly. 

A Globe Thistle, reminds me of a 4th of July fireworks. 

The vivid magenta roses against this grey statue of the woman holding a garland caught my eye.
