That right there is a macro shot of the center of one of the sunflowers I showed you on Friday. I took 30+ photos with the macro lens last week and . . . I didn’t love any of them. But then I thought, well, I’ll do something else and have THAT to post on Monday.
The fact that you are now seeing this photo tells you that I did not, in fact, take another photo to share with you today. And as I’m writing this it’s Sunday night and that Pats are about to play and I just want this post to be . . . done. Partly so that it’s done but mostly so that I don’t have to get up early tomorrow morning and post something. #beingcompletelyhonesthere
So. A Macro Photo that isn’t bad (it’s in focus and kind of cool) but isn’t maybe the best subject (I’d like to try a macro shot that has a more interesting background.)
But, as I always said when I was quilting: Done is better than perfect!
Happy Monday, my friends.
Done IS better than perfect! Who knew there were hints of purple in the center of a sunflower? Glad you got this post done so you could watch the Patriots; some things are more important than posting!

It’s so easy to get hung up on perfect.
I like how you captured that one wayward petal in the shot. The fact that you took 30+ photos says maybe this is as perfect as this sunflower wants to be.
Mary K is right… it is too easy to get hung up on perfect! I like your photo and think it is a sunny start to Monday!
Happy Monday! I think the photo is cool – I love the colors and that little water drop.
I like this a lot. It’s cheerful – just like sunflowers are.
The photo is great! And the purple really is pretty cool!
I’ve of the mind that if the aim is perfection, nothing will ever get done. This is a perfectly lovely photo!
You never need to apologize, Carole. XO (As you’ve told me many times . . . it’s a blog, not a job.) And THAT is a really wonderful shot of a gorgeous sunflower. Flowers are magical! 🙂

It’s gorgeous! I love the little blips of purple in the seeds.
It’s a learning experiment, right? Like life? So there is going to be a lot of imperfection, no matter what you do. I think it’s interesting, Carole. And I am sure you learned something. Never apologize for anything you post since you are doing the work, Carole!
Macro shots are SO tricky! It’s a pretty great shot, Carole!!

Love your sunflower photos!
