  1. I've always loved microscopes, and I really think that it is because there's a whole other world below, beneath and within us - and it's only with close-up work that we can see into this marvelous world. I really admire your close-ups, because they touch this most magical realm.

  2. Spot on. That's what close-ups and macro photography are all about, the magical realm I hope to get more deeply involved in the future.
