Sunshine’s Reflections #5

We are at week 5 of Sunshine’s Reflections.  My photo is a look back at summer on Chicago’s lakefront.  Now it is your turn.

Chicago Lakefront 7.31.17

This is a week-long challenge without prompts, other than it should be a photo with reflections.  Having fun while getting creative in the making of an image is a must.  Reflections can be found everywhere – buildings, raindrops, eyes, bodies of water, windows and so much more. Enter as many or as few pics as you like each week. Title your post however you like and please mention Sunshine’s Reflections somewhere on your post. Create a pingback or add a link in the comment section below.

What is macro photography?  Basically, macro photography is capturing small subjects with larger than life results. A true macro shot could be anything magnified at a ratio of 1:1 or higher.  For the purpose of this challenge, we will not be strict with the 1:1 rule.  I am more interested in people having fun looking for the details, whether it is true macro or close-up photography.  A macro lens is not a must.  Great results can be obtained with whatever zoom lens and camera is on hand.

Everyone is welcome to join in with one or more macro or close-up shots each week.  Create a pingback or add a link in the comment section below. Mention Sunshine’s Macro Monday on your post and tag your post SMM.
