CMMC: Midweek Close-ups

Today’s topic for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge is Close-ups or Macros. I don’t know about you, but I hadn’t sorted my photos for close-up shots.

This afternoon it took me about an hour and a half to go through my 2021 photos and add a keyword label to each photo that fit the description of that photo type. Next, I tried to make it into a collection, but sadly Bridge froze. That was another great example I could have used for my Writer’s Quotes Challenge this week – cold!

My Close Up Choices

Feeling lucky in a pink Mustang
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
“When you coming home, Mom?”

“I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then, Moj. You know we’ll have a good time then.”
“Could Mom have been eaten by a monster?”
“Did she fly away with a giant hummingbird?”
Is she bringing me something beautiful?

This photo works well for Thursday’s Trios on Mama Cormier’s blog, too.

“Relax, Moj. There are no monsters or giant hummingbirds. You don’t need any more toys. Probably she’s bringing us home an alien to climb on because our tree is worn out.”

“Would you two shush and let me sleep. Nutters doesn’t give me any room, and you never shut up, Moj.”

“There’s no such thing as aliens, Nutter Butter. Besides I always need more toys.”

Now its your turn.

I’m not great at writing short stories, but I love to write dialogue – especially when my animals get involved. What close-ups do you have hiding in your files?

    • They are soft, but Nutter Butter is the one who allows you to pet his paws. Moji has started to reach out and pat Vince on the arm gently with no claws to wake him when she thinks it’s breakfast time (about 3:00-4:00 am.).


    • Thanks, Cee. I’m thinking about our BD party. Why don’t you send me about 7 (our number) of your favorite photos – links are good. Are you doing anything on your site? If not, I’ll add 7 of my favorite photos. I’m thinking about doing a video of Vince making tacos because Yvette said she wanted tacos. I’m also using a few of Janis’s photos of Day of the Dead to go with the tacos. Do you have a favorite song or video? You can email me answers. I’m just lazy! ๐Ÿ™‚





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
