Macro Monday *Glistening Wishes*

I'm SO glad to find the time and be playing Macro Monday again! I LOVE macro photography, so I really, really enjoy this meme.

When I get certain photos, I think "Hmmm, that will be perfect for Macro Monday!" Unfortunately, lately, my photography, and especially my blogging has taken a backseat when things at my full-time job got very hectic. I was putting in extra hours there, coming home and doing my second job, and by dinner time, I was exhausted.

Anyway, enough of my whining. The photo below is one of those photos I took and thought it would be 'perfect for the Macro Monday meme'.

When I was young, we would catch these milkweed seeds, close our eyes and make a wish, and then blow the seed back into the air.

Have you ever made a wish on a milkweed seed or a dandelion? Did your wish come true? What would you wish for now?

Go ahead. Close your eyes, and make a wish. Wish for a dream come true, best acne treatment, a sunny day, to find true love - Now, blow your wish into the sky.

Here's hoping your wish comes true. ;-)



This is a perfect photo. I really like the muted colors and the composition. Very painterly.


Your shot shows the delicacy of the milkweed seed perfectly.


It's a beauty!


That's a very pretty photo! Milkweed seeds, huh? No, I've never wished on milkweed seeds, but as a child I used to blow dandelion 'clocks' and make a wish!
