A Wandering Memory is essentially classified as a Travel Blog, however blogging and travel are not the only passions we have. One which we are sure you would guess is photography, as our recently camera equipment blog suggested.
Our memories are a priceless commodity, they are central to our very being, defining the experiences we have and the lives we lead. Being able to capturing memories in the moment allows us to revisit that memory in all of its splendour every time. Photography can not only capture the memory and the beauty, but also the emotion of the scene or moment. Being that with age our memory fades, photography can reignite faded memories and emotions – It is truly a blessing.
I have long been an aspiring photographer, and after roaring success in Africa with my 500mm telephoto lens, I recently started to dabble into the art of macro photography. Before I start this, please excuse the crude explanations, as I am no expert, just a curious blogger who has a desire to better a skill.
To the best of my knowledge, macro photography is the art of ‘detailed’ images. Getting up-close and personal with the subject matter using specialised equipment (esp. lens) that is able to bring out every detail.
As spring has recently sprung here in southern England I really wanted to experiment a bit with some local insects and our garden flowers and seeds.
