After my literary close-up of Rome I started looking at a few photos that might match the theme. First up, a water drop-covered mushroom in the North Cascades.
A close-up of peeling birch at the Bloedel Reserve.
Getting close to a mound of white M&Ms at the New York M&M World’s Wall of Chocolate.
Last, but certainly not least, a close-up of the original Piglet of Winnie the Pooh fame. I had to get close, he’s only 3 inches tall.
Are you ready for your close-up? If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Close-up
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday

Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot. – Charlie Chaplin
The trick to forgetting the big picture is to look at everything close-up. – Chuck Palahniuk

Hi Ailsa, the drops on the mushroom are amazing. Love the macro.
Here is my go for this week. Not as macro as some of your shots, but close-up nonetheless.
