It’s another Macro Monday

With apologies to The Bangles, a pop-rock group that released a hit single back in ’86, my slight twist to the song’s title reveals that it’s another MACRO, not MANIC, Monday.

This being the second Monday of the month, it’s time for camera buffs to put aside the DSLR and simply frame a shot or two with an iThingie. It’s called PHONEOGRAPHY, and this week’s challenge is to “phone in” a few MACRO shots.

It’s no secret that I LOVE to eat, and there’s really no place I’d rather be, with knife and fork in hand, than right here in Bella Italia where food and wine rule.

Feast your eyes on these epicurean delights captured with my iPhone 5.

For more examples of MACRO Phoneography just click HERE.

If you occasionally shoot with an i-Thingie, why not join in the fun and hone your craft. There’s a rotating phoneography challenge each and every Monday. For details, visit Sally’s Lens and Pens by Sally.

C u next week for a MANIC Monday in B&W.

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


  1. As a vegetarian, some of your images are pushing me to visit my garden and pick herbs and tomatoes to create a mid-day meal, yummy. As usual each image pulls the viewer into the ingredients. Happy Phoneography Monday.
