Sterling Moss | Reprise.


Way back in May last year, I posted a few frames snagged of the moss on my garden wall. Not hugely interesting, to many I am sure, and in review, I have caught far better. One of the aspects of any image that I choose to make that I find is very important is, quite simply, to try to capture a different view of things; not necessarily unusual, rather – a view not too often seen by the many of us who don’t stop from time to time to observe, or seek. I am still very guilty of this – though not always. This is why, in contrast to the visible-light frames that I had posted in #24 – I have decided that these are more preferable and, a little more interesting, to me at least. I do love ‘delicate’. I hope that you’ll enjoy them, too.

    1. I did try to express that but wasn’t sure I did so well. Should have used my tripod but, there’ll be other rainy days, for sure. Death, taxes, rain. Life’s certainties! 🤣

  1. There was an exhibition of mosses and lichens in the Museum of Nature here in Tallinn a couple of years ago. It was one of the best exhibitions I have visited in recent years. I adore both. I remembered the case. When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I was going home from school through the park. The park was pretty wild and unkempt. I walked past the trees and then I stopped and saw lichens for the first time. I was so impressed that I wandered among the trees for several hours. As a result, I got in trouble when I came back home because I was hanging out in an unknown place. But lichens were awesome… I had a microscope in childhood. Many macro photos remind me of what I saw through a microscope.
    P.S. Awesome work! 😀

    1. Hi Alena. I am very happy to know your memories! Myself, I am fascinated by all things macro and I have to say, a good microscope is high on my wish list! PS: Thank you! 🙏 🤣

    1. I wasn’t about to be disheartened, B, 🥴 but yes, you’re right. I’ve been intrigued by this little plant for a long time. Tiny and yet, very resilient! Always lovely to read your comments. Thank you! 🙏

    1. Rajeev, thank you my friend! I’ll have a look at the raws and see if it’s worth appending a colour frame to the post.. just for you! Have a great weekend! 🙏

  2. I don’t know about your 35mm but I can only get about a foot away with my Sony 1.8. Fortunately my RX100 picks up the slack but it doesn’t focus as well so its kind of hit or miss for sharpness where I want it.

  3. Beautiful! I also love what you said, “a view not too often seen by the many of us who don’t stop from time to time to observe, or seek.” Great reminder.
