The Way I See It

The Enchanted (Raku) Forest

There is something about this macro image of a raku vase that makes me think of an enchanted forest enveloped in a blue mist. Funny how I have looked at this vase (by Richard Towbin) for years and never really saw the forest until I got up close with my macro lens. It is amazing what will appear when you see things close up—and I love using my macro lens for just that reason.
