Henry David Thoreau
I try to keep my eyes closer to the subjects of interest because many times i discovered wonderful patterns and designs
Queen of the night is one of my favorite flowers. This particular kind starts blooming in the late evening into the night and at the same time releases an intoxicating fragrance. The flower is ivory white in full bloom. It wilts the next morning. This one is a closeup of the flower once it's over, my very first attemp to look closer :-)
Lotus is another flower that i love but the close-up below is of the leaf
At the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Garden i saw a group of cactus plants and the leaves have fascinating patterns on them
I was waiting for my carwash and i saw this in one of the planters :-)
This water pattern looks like a meshed necklace
On the hiking trails i love to look closely at the tree trunks
and new growths like these at Eaton Canyon Nature Center
Do you see the tiny 'feets' that cling so tightly to the walls?
One day i went to the beach and looking down on the sand i saw these forests
i was so fascinated so i kept shooting for hours. Some people gave me strange looks as if they wondered what i was looking at. You can click here for the slide show.
Later on the same beach when the sun began to set the reflection on the sand was quite spectacular
These were taken at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve
this one reminds me of the black jelly drink that i like very much when i was still living in Vietnam :-)
I have so much fun looking closer :-)
