The essentials... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria The essentials... by Michel-Lag-Chavarria
At the sharpest edge of my love
As in the deepest jungles of my heart,
You are here and will always be
For making me focus on the essentials...

This is dedicated to my son, Damien, and to his lady, Marie...
I hope this ladybird will take her flight and reach them soon with all my tenderness... :heart:


Shot yesterday afternoon 4:00 pm, Canon EOS 300D, Canon lens 28-55 mm, automatic macro position. Just cropped and noise reduction with Paint Shop Pro 9...

It seems everyone wants to take a closer look at the ladybugs... I've done same thing a few days ago and I really enjoy it! Yours is beautiful...

the shallow dof is great and the emphasis on the ladybird is astonishing, it really stands out, and looks so tiny and fragile yet it is the main focus of the powerful image.

We were created to appreciate beauty, even in the tiniest things. Think about how intricately designed the ladybug is. Even with all our knowledge, we cannot build a device with such complex beauty and functionality as this.

i think the small leave really makes the picture, beautiful. but i would make it even wider to give the image more room on the left side.

I forgot; I really like the way you use words as well... Essentials; knowing that is one, seeing that is another thing. Ah such eye for detail... One who does not see such small things as this, misses half the world. I'm glad to know you see these things...

My pleasure........... Now do forgive me for any grammar mistakes, I'm not French, but feel free to ehm... pick out any mistakes... Just something that came up;

Ils sont les petites choses
qui sont essentielles
Comme une étoile
dans la nuit du ciel

Comme un rêve
ou un instant passé
C'est comme un bébé
qui aujourd'hui est né

Comme les petits mots
qui peuvent être beaux
comme une caresse douce
comme la lumière en l'eau

Ou peut-être une coccinelle
dans une feuille vert et pointu
C'est ça qu'est que c'est essentiel
et c'est pour toujours

- et rien perdu
