What in the heck is a DAJJ?

Digitally Awesome Journey ~ Julie.

There is much to be said about the world around us, but even more to see.  I am often struck by the volume of beauty around us that goes unnoticed in a world of harried people.  Like most adults, I too reached a stage in my life where childlike wonderment and the profound beauty of tiny details began to elude me; however, I was fortunate.  I had the opportunity years ago to test a photo editing software for a foreign software development company.  I started with a Kodak Easyshare.  Quickly moved on to Fuji.  My cameras gradually became more complex, bigger and consequently, more expensive. 

I continue to believe that one's camera matters very little.  I have seen absolutely amazing shots come off a cell phone camera.  The secret is in capturing what you see and to have the eye to see it in the first place.

I have a love affair with macro photography.  I often see the the beauty in things that others may not view as beautiful (thus my collection of bug shots in macro).

 

A Penny For Your Thoughts - One of the first macro shots I took and edited.  This penny was on the ground, and I took the picture (well actually about 200 pictures) of it as it sat.
