MCP Project 52: Get In Close

This week's theme is "get in close" and I am more than happy to oblige. The hard part was staggering outside and experiencing extreme summer weather up close as well.

It turned out that the weather worked in my favor. The high humidity gave the tiny white flowers I found in our lawn a luminescent quality when viewed through the camera. There is no Photoshop trickery involved, all I did was boost the contrast a smidgen to green up the grass.

At the time I was hunting for bugs, I knew there would be plenty of flower/plant shots. However, these petite little blooms won out. We'll see if anyone else over the the photo group likes these as much as me.
