Fuchsia is my signature color, and macro shots are my favorite. For those that don’t know, and I’m sure there are many of you because I didn’t know myself, macro photography means taking a magnified picture of an object. Shouldn’t that be micro then…? Nope. It’s macro. This mini carnation is about the size of a quarter. I was just learning how to use my new camera when I got this shot. I think this was the gateway shot that got me addicted to macro photography.
