Macro Month – Day 9 – Feet

We all love our doggies, even more so when they are special like Nilo here, she is a rescue dog, but not from a rescue centre but from a rubbish bin, you know, one of those large container bins there is no chance she could jump or climb out of. We went to dump our rubbish one Sunday, I lifted up the lid and there she was, looking up at me with the most amazing eyes. We grabbed her and put her one the ground, expecting her to run off away from us, but she just cowered on the ground. I didn’t want another dog, after all, the week before we had just lost our beloved Chewie and I wasn’t ready to get emotionally envolved with another dog. But hubby said, lets take her. So here she is, in her favourite place, 4 months after rescue day, in the hammock chair. The photo of her in the chair was taken iwht a cell phone, the close up of the feet are the macro photos of the day.


Macro Month – Day 7 – The Hose Pipe

Busy day today, I had no time to actually go out and take a photo, so I am using one from last month, so not too old after all. The hose pipe, it was lying on the ground to the position was awkward, but with the help of the screen I took a few photos but in the end the vertical photo was my choice.

Macro Month – Day 4 – Aloe Vera

A series of macro photos of our aloe vera from the garden, we were out walking in the neighbourhood a few months ago and found thrown on the road a couple of aloe vera plants which we picked up and took home and planted, they are thriving.
