My usual macro subject is something from nature, often a flower.   Well, an onion is from nature, so I’m not too far afield (so to speak.)  Anyway, here’s my offering for “Macro” this week.

  1. looks very beautiful!

  2. Lovely, almost as though a beautiful piece of freshly dyed paper were ripped and arranged for enjoyment. Proving how macro can change our understanding of a subject. Very nice. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Glad you like it, Sally. I hope your Monday is off to a wonderful start. Haven’t had a chance to see your offerings yet, but I know I’ll enjoy them.

    Great idea. I’m not sure I would have realized it was an onion. Looks totally different this way.

    • I have a small “thing” about food/kitchen/cooking shots, especially when they’re macro. As you say, they look very different. Glad you liked this one.

    You’ve shown that onions are definitely worth a second look.
    When I read that it would make me cry ,I got ready to see some poor wee dead creature. I laughed when I saw it was an onion. .

    Absolutely stunning!

  7. Wonderful abstract painting. Oh wait it’s photo of an onion. Just like the little girl with the iPhone video in the Apple commercial only better.
    Happy Monday

  8. Interesting macro. You have such an eye for details that I just don’t see

    • I think all photographers have certain things that catch their eyes, but I think we can learn to see other things as well, although maybe we just have to look harder.

    Amazing how much is revealed when you look very close.

  10. Amazing macro, Janet. Who knew that an onion could look so gorgeous? 🙂

  11. Gina says:

    Wow! I love this!

  12. Emilio Pasquale says:

    You got me with your title. I thought it was going to be something sad. Not beautiful!

  13. Perfect! That’s my type of shot! See, even things that make you cry can be beautiful. 🙂

    • So very true. I’m always seeing things in the kitchen while I’m cooking that beg for a photo. Mostly I can capture them, but not always. 🙂 Fun to try, though.
