You might say now, don’t ask me for macros. OK, I won’t do it. But, nevertheless, you can see, focussing on the details does not necessarily mean macro photography. Having an overview is very nice. But, in general, the details are more important. You’re right, you have to focus and work on your inner eye to find the sweet spot, the composing supporting your idea most.
Go out, take your camera and take photos, come back and show your results. Link your post to Patti’s post, as she’s the host for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo-Challenge. Everyone is welcome.

Love your details – gargoyles are favourites!
Thanks, Ann-Christine 😊
Wonderful details. You’re right about details not having to be macro but macro or not, they make such a difference in a photo.
Thanks, Janet. Details make a difference and macros are a kind of a detail. So, they are the specialists. While you can take one or two overview images of a scene in different angels, there’s always room for a zillion of images of details. But, one must walk around with open eyes to see them 😊
Very true, something hard to do when so many are looking at details on their phones these days.
ahhhh, the phone 😲 Although you get quite good images with your phone, the owner still has to focus and compose. Fortunately, there’s still not motif-bell built in 😊
I take lots of phone photos but so many people look only at their phones and not at what’s around them that it doesn’t matter how good their cameras are. 🙁
Yep, that’s true. sad. The image on the mobile for FB or Instagram is more important than enjoying the nature. ☹️
Or even talking to the child in the stroller that the mom’s taking for a walk.
Great examples of detail 🙂
Wonderful details, Andre. I especially love your flowers in the snow and the gargoyles. Great captures.
Thank you so much, Patti. Meeting wit other photographers for photowalks helps a lot developing you eye. Walking in the same area and looking together on the results is not only a lot of fun, you can also learn. You will see things which you have overlooks and thus missed.
The thing about your posts Andre is how annoying it is. As I click through your images I think I’ve found the one the I most love, and then I click on the next one and it outshines the previous one. And on and on it goes! Clearly your eye is always on the alert for the beautiful, the fun, the odd, etc and you excel at them all. That was especially true this week but I must say I did have to laugh out loud at the elderly people sign!!!
It wasn’t my plan to annoy you, sorry. Your compliments are flattering to me. Thank you sooooo much, Tina, 😊 Regarding the sign warning of the elderly people, is in Scotland. I noticed it a couple of times. Here, we are warning the car drivers to pay attention to playing kids or schools.
Wow. GREAT series. The apple and hand is a fave, but many fine selections.
Thank you so much, John. I also love the apple image. Over the years I have several of them in my archive. I really love the idea.
I had to look really close at that elderly people sign to see that the yellow blob is a horse. A surprise and a puzzle!
An amazing palette of details but that raindrop photo is certainly my favorite among all 🙂
thank you so much, Hammad 😊
