Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot: #33: Up Close!






"I have never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful."

-Unknown





NOTE: Before we get started, I want to remind you to check the link you leave after you post it in the comment thread. Blogger was a bit spotty last week, and more then one link never made it to me, so, just double check things before you leave.

EMPS#33: UP CLOSE! NOW CLOSED!
Easy, easy, easy... grab your cameras and show me something UP CLOSE. It doesn't have to be macro, just something you would like to show off at close range. A couple years ago, Elvis's friend Ernst graciously agreed to pose for me, see, that is him pictured there, so I know pets can be very willing subjects! Also good are flowers, candy, nails, fabrics, mixed vegetables, water, dirt, garbage, coins, people... the possibilities are endless! So go for it! Show me something UP CLOSE!

Extra Credit: Show me something you are photographing for the very first time. Something you never thought of photographing!

**Please Read**
You have until next Sunday, at 9:00 PM ET to get your photograph, post it to your blog, journal, or website, and comeback here with the direct link to your posting. Remember, it must a direct link which is specific to this EMPS assignment! No hyperlinks will be accepted, or added to the Linking List which will be posted next Monday with the next assignment. Also, please include a link back here to so other folks can play along with the assignment.

You have pointed the way to my close ups, although they would have turned out the same anyway. LOL!

OK Carly, I have a new picture up for this week's challenge. For once I didn't go into my archives. In fact, this picture is from yesterday. I hope you like it.
