Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Macro in a mason jar



Gardening gone Wild has their first "Picture This" photo contest of 2011 underway. This one is most interesting, and I thought challenging. The idea is to place your subject in the bottom of a jar of your choice, rest your camera on the lip of the jar, and take your photo. Read more HERE
I decided to go with an Autumn theme, by first by placing the jar on some pretty pressed maple leaves, then inside the jar I have pine needles, bark and a pine cone nestled on top.
I thought the round sides of the jar hints at an edge for the nest of pine needles and bark, holding the pine cone.

Wonderful! After seeing what everyone else has done, I don't know that my photo stands a chance. It was fun to enter anyway! Good luck to you!

Hi KeeWee,

I am trying to enter the GGW photo contest. How do you do a direct link to just the photo not the blog? Thank you.
