I was born with a fascination for small things. All my life I've been drawn to tiny, intricate things, so it wasn't surprising when I developed a love of photography that macro work became my passion.
It seems to me that the wonder of design, the sheer beauty of detail and the power of colour is magnified when we look closer, and often the greatest beauty is found in the smallest things.
Some of these flowers are no more than an inch in diameter ... at a glance they look very ordinary but look closer and the detail is breathe taking. It reminds me that God is a God of detail ... in creation and in our lives ... as he cares for the lilies of the field, how much more does he care for us.
We often miss the beauty in the small things in this larger-than-life existence we are encouraged to live. I hope these images bring a moment of delight and joy to your day as you stop and enjoy the wonder of our great Creator.
These images were taken in Mt Wilson NSW at two of my favourite gardens, Merry Garth and Windyridge. Both these gardens are the work of the owners, true gardeners who have painted wide sweeping vistas and secret rooms with dirt on their hands, passion in their soul and dreams that keep them creating an ever evolving landscape. I highly recommend a visit.
