Macro Tributaries

(Camera: Olympus OM-G; Lens: Zuiko 50mm f/3.5 Macro; Film: Kodak T-Max 100)

I’m struck by how often shapes and textures recur in nature even on vastly different scales. One of the things I most love about macro lenses is how well they distort our perception of the everyday and familiar, and give us new ways of seeing. The details in this close-up shot remind me of early Landsat images of river systems and the spines of mountain ranges. Yes, its’s a photo of a frost-coated leaf, but it’s really all about patterns and structure.
