I'm totally fascinated by this picture of the mold that was growing on one of our Jack-o-lanterns.
When you think of mold you generally think of green fuzzy stuff
and goodness knows there was plenty of that on this pumpkin,
but these little stems with the balls on the ends are so cool.
Really, I think it's kind of pretty in it's own very special way.
I took these pictures with the kit lens that came with my camera,
just an 18-55mm lens.
It's not a macro lens, but it's the closest thing I have and I must say it's done a pretty good job,
but oooooohhhh, the shots I could get if I owned a macro lens.
I might even decide to do a whole series on molds.
(I'm sure someone else has already done this to perfection, but it sounds like a fun idea.)
Then... when my family wonders why I haven't been cleaning out the refrigerator or tossing the old bread
I can tell them that it's "for my art!" :)
With my luck, I'd probably come across some particularly deadly strain of mold and die with my camera clutched in my hands.
But then you could say... she died doing something she enjoyed.
Hey... quick question to all you Macro Monday people.
What macro lens do you use?
