Close up

One of my favorite movies of my younger days was Blade Runner, the original version, with the main character's detective genre voiceover by Harrison Ford. And there's a little scene of future tech in it that fascinated me. Decker, the main character, is examining a photograph, and its resolution is so good he can zoom way in on it and examine details in the picture on a minute, invisible to the eye level. I loved it.

As you likely know, I have been taking a lot of close up pictures of flowers this Spring. In many of these pictures I am so close that part of the flower leans right up on my lens. When I take the pictures I really only have a rough idea of the composition and the subject. Then I go I upload them to my computer to see what we have wrought.


Oh, there's a good one. 

Sometimes I like the picture just nearly exactly as it is:

And sometimes I like it, but I zoom in.

And zoom in.

And zoom in.

And I'm living in the future I saw almost 40 years ago.

Fewer robots though.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
