I look forward to taking my kids on their afternoon walk. I pack up a snack for them and often grab a snack for myself while we’re out. Carluccio’s is a fun little place to stop for a quick espresso and something sweet.

A bench provided the perfect backdrop for this photo, and I bounced a flash off the back of it to create some dimensionality on an otherwise overcast day. I was using one of my favorite lenses, a 60mm macro, to get close to this delightful duo.

Followers of this blog will know that I am a huge fan of looking for texture and patterns. I recently picked up a used macro lens (my first!) and have begun experimenting with it. The backlighting on this leaf provided the perfect opportunity to try it out. Keep an eye out for more macro photos appearing in the future!
