Close-Up Photography

Last week our camera club focused, (pun intended), on doing close-up or macro photography. It’s an area that I really haven’t done much of, but still enjoy.

Mississagi River Provincial Park

This past weekend, I spent time going through my photos trying to pull together some stuff for a family photo album.
