I was fascinated by these images taken by photographer Svjetlana Tepavcevic when I came across them in New Scientist. Being too lazy to get up and fetch the magazine before I wrote about them I thought I would just search for 'seed photographs' and did I get a bonanza of a site when I recognized one of her seed photographs. I'd love to know why in a search for seed photographs I managed to get so many wedding photographs, strange.
Svjetlana became interested in seeds after finding a strange object near her house in Los Angeles. She plans to publish a book of her photographs but in the meantime go here to see some brilliant examples of macro photography.
This is the inner lining of the seed pod of Marah macrocarpus or bigroot, a type of wild cucumber that twines around trees.
This is the seed pod of Koelreuteria elegans, the Chinese rain tree.
And a nutmeg seed still wrapped in its outer covering strands of mace.
Tomas Rak's speciality is photographing insects and don't do what I did and put it up as wallpaper and forget. It's a real heartstopper when starting up the computer in the morning.
|This one is even better as wall paper if you have the nerve.|
Don't miss looking at Corrie White's lovely water drops either or miss the wonderful macro images of snowflakes. There are so many other images I think I'm going to enjoy Bloodyloud.com.
