The Gallery : Extreme Close Up

Today Tara over at Sticky fingers has a really great prompt... close ups!

I hardly ever use my macro settings on my camera, I am far more a point and shot and hope for the best sort of photographer, but I caught sight of this prompt just before I rushed off out to get my three from school this afternoon, on returning home in the glorious sunshine they quickly grabbed their shorts and T shirts and demanded we take Jackson to the local fields, so I grabbed my camera and off we went.

Once there my eldest two ran off with some friends to play ball, I sat with my youngest and Jackson and took the opportunity to get some snaps perfect for todays Gallery!

But it wasn't long before Mikey ran off to join the others so Jackson become my subject.

Luckily for me he is very Photogenic.
