Getting close to your food

As those of you who read this blog often know, I am a huge fan of the macro lens. Get close, get detailed, get intimate with one’s vegetables, herbs and flowers.

Besides, shooting the garden that way eliminates any chance that those of you out in the world will ever know the true state of my gloriously messy, not-very-contained garden plot.

I have not yet stepped out the back door carrying a microscope. After seeing what the folks at Wired came up with after examining Thanksgiving dinner through one of them there instruments, though, I’m intrigued. Maybe it’s time for me to get all microscopic on my plants?

Have a happy Thanksgiving, American gardeners. To my Canadian friends, you may have beaten us to the punch on picking a date, but for that, you get to spend tomorrow working while we have a vacation day. Ha. And to the rest of the world, well, I’m grateful you stop by for a read or two, and I wish you a wonderful day, as well.

See you on the flip side of the turkey, folks.

    do it! I put a couple of dissecting microscopes in my class the other day and let the students take a new look at plants….. very very cool.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Lydia, Wayne and Christina, thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes! Hope you guys are having a wonderful day of feasting.

    Wayne, that does sound cool — I used to love using a microscope…maybe I should revisit that…
