This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “Fingertip(s).” From this week’s instructions (from Janet Towbin):
We are going to try something a little bit different this week and my hope is to have some incredibly creative images within this theme’s very restrictive parameters. The theme is Fingertip(s) and by this I mean that your image will feature one (or more) small object(s) placed either directly on fingertip(s) or held between fingertip(s). You can select anything at all you want to include in the photo—but your image MUST show at least one fingertip in conjunction with that object(s). I have put together a gallery of images to illustrate exactly what I mean with this theme. You will have to get in EXTREMELY close to show both fingertip(s) and object(s). The focus of your composition must include BOTH of these elements. You may use your fingertips or someone else’s. Tips of thumbs will be accepted as “fingertips” for this theme. Keep in mind that many adult fingers might exceed our size limitation of 3” (7.6 cm) in length so do NOT photograph a whole finger or fingers—just the tips of them. Nail polish shots or photos of nail art are not acceptable for this theme. (It is ok if your nails are polished—I think you all know what kind of photos I am referring to; if not look here.)
There is a maximum of 3″ (7.6 cm) as a guideline for the group: That means photographing something NO LARGER than 3” (7.6 cm) in its largest dimension or photographing a mere 3″ (7.6cm) of a larger object. Tag your photos with “Macro Mondays” and this week’s theme “Fingertip(s)” or #MacroMondays #Fingertip(s)
Tip of My Finger
Because Veteran’s Day was this past weekend, I’ve been thinking a lot about my grandparents. They are all gone now and have been for some time. My father’s mother, Nanny, loved butterflies and had them all around her house. Anytime I see a butterfly outside, I think of her and feel that she is saying hi to me. For this week’s theme, I purchased a small silk butterfly to honor her. I debated color or black and white, and decided the simplicity of black and white was most beautiful.
