The tiniest detail
A while back I wrote a short post about the small details in nature that we often overlook. I like this photo, taken on a rambling walk along the old city walls in Luzern this May, because it similarly shows the tiniest detail – the white pollen tips of the flowers, the delicate stripes on the petals. These flowers were tiny themselves, and could have been easily missed, but that afternoon, the pace was slowed down, as we enjoyed unseasonably warm weather and comfortable chatter with dear friends. So I had time to look around, and notice the more minute details. However, I am still working on my close-up photography skills; this photo is far from perfect – I can already see what I need to improve in order to be more technically proficient – but I am happy with the detail I did manage to capture, and looking forward to the day when I can take photos of details like these in an even better way.
