“Outside, there was that predawn kind of clarity, where the momentum of living has not quite captured the day. The air was not filled with conversation or thought bubbles or laughter or sidelong glances. Everyone was sleeping, all of their ideas and hopes and hidden agendas entangled in the dream world, leaving this world clear and crisp and cold.”
-- Reif Larsen, The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet
One of the things I like best about macro photography is that when you're bending or laying down to get a closeup shot of a tiny flower, insect, or other small subject, and are peering at the intimate little micro-scape through your lens, there are a few moments when time seems to slow down and the sounds of the outside world seem to hush, leaving you briefly in a small, protected world beyond time and space. It's an illusion, but one that I thoroughly enjoy having. :-)
