All roads lead to Rome!

We, the photographers are always happy and satisfied with the results regardless of the approach we take to capture the shot.

Joy, happiness, gratification and contentment are the end result, common to all of us.

Don’t you agree with me?

This week John.S (Joureys with Johnbo) the host of the Lens-Artists Photo challenge (with the topic-The road most often taken), says

“This week’s theme is metaphoric–and not about a physical road. For this week’s challenge, I want you to think of your favourite type or style of photography as the road you’ve chosen to take most often. For me, it’s landscape photography as it fits so well with my travelling soul. My examples are all landscapes, but I want to see in what style you like to photograph best.”

Last August, we had an interesting topic by Anne Sandler whats your photography groove?

I responded with my post Photography is nothing to do with cameras

I expressed that I was into fisheye lens photography and crystal ball photography.

Over time I was not finding many opportunities in these two types of photography, so I turned to Macro Photography. (100mm f/2.8 Macro lens)

I guarantee you, Macrophotography never disappoints you.

If you love this branch of photography don’t hesitate to invest in a good lens.

Macrophotography is incomplete if there is no flower photo.


The flower image below is a Desert Rose and its scientific name is Adenium Obesum.

It looks so beautiful and pleasing to the eyes.

But sadly it’s a poisonous species of a flowering plant.

The sap from its roots and stem contains a poisonous ingredient, used as an arrow poison.

The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same.

Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.

And I am glad, I am enjoying my journey in Macrophotography.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. I agree. There is always a sense of satisfaction no matter where we land with our camera. I have contemplated getting a macro lens. I love the detail brought to life with them. The ant is amazing. Love the ademiums, and didn’t know of the poison. Thanks for that. I wonder if they are all poisonous. I will have to do research.
