Macro Monday



This is my front doormat. It's cast iron, and we bought it in Ruidoso, N.M., when we were on a road trip. I miss road trips, a lot.
Added note: my porch isn't yellow; I took this at sunset, and enhanced the colors. I thought it was a lucky shot.

Macro Monday is the brain-child of one of my fave photographers, Lisa. Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or close-up) photo, post it on your blog, and let Lisa know you're playing. Easy, peasy.

  1. I love it! Why don't you take road trips anymore? You should, gas prices are down, jump in the car and go. :)

    I like this place. :)

  3. I love all the lines, shadows and color. You have a yellow porch? Cool!

    We are big lovers of road trips too. And my dh grew up in NM...just random trivia there.

  8. I would never have guessed this was a door mat; it looks like an iron filigree on an old hacienda. Beautiful with the low sun angle. I see in your profile you work at Barnes and Noble --- for the books. :-) I'm thinking of doing the same thing. I really should get paid for single-handedly boosting their sales!

  9. Hi Jan! Welcome! Your photograph of the cast iron grate is striking! Ah I would love to work at B and N too! Unfortunately the nearest store is 90 miles away..would be quite a commute:)
