Enjoying God’s Creation Through Macro Photography

Since my photography blog was a flop our blogging friend Nathan Stitt encouraged me to post photos here. I really want to keep this blog focused on Scripture and Christian subjects but now and then I will keep posting Free Photos and maybe some others if I can keep a post on-topic.

I’ve gotten into macro photography lately and it amazes me what we can see through a macro lens that we would never notice otherwise. God created most of these things for His own enjoyment because we won’t discover the vast majority of them. It’s great to participate in enjoying God’s creation in this way. So I thought I’d post some macro photos that have opened my eyes up to small things that are common but not seen.

Click on a picture to see a larger one and if you put your cursor over one you may see a title. It may take a few seconds for some of them. Press Escape to get out if you have a small screen.

Genesis 1:11-12
Then God said, “Let the earth produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit with seed in it, according to their kinds.” And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation: seed-bearing plants according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it, according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:24-2
Then God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that crawl, and the wildlife of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. 25 So God made the wildlife of the earth according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and creatures that crawl on the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

    Thanks. If you say so. I sometimes feel like I’m coming off as trying to show off. I post links to others’ too because there are so many great photographers out there that I look up to.

    Really? They look familiar… Maybe new images of the same shoot?

  6. 6 Scripture Zealot

    No, I shot them all at once in the kitchen very recently except for the weird flower which is a little older and the bug which was just a couple days before this I think. That was my first good bug shot.

    I did do a different picture of the cactus hooks now that I think of it where they were vertical. Same plant but a different shoot.
