A couple of close ups spotted on recent walks around the neighborhood.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Close Up or Macro prompt.

Some lichen growing on tree bark. I liked the way the texture and colour of the lichen almost blends in with the bark.

Tree Trunk Details

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: On a Small Scale prompt.

On Sunday morning I went for a walk around the neighborhood with a macro lens on the camera. I quickly found myself concentrating on details of the various tree trunks on the route I picked.

Focusing on the Details

This week Patti has given us the prompt Focusing on the Details for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

As Ontario is currently under the third Covid-19 lockdown I decided to look back at some of the details I photographed on my walks around the neighborhood while under the various lockdowns.
