I like to try different things in photography. I’ve found some interesting macro- photography at the Tucson Gem and mineral show. For the last several years I’ve gone and found unique shapes and patterns in the hundreds of mineral there. The colors can be amazing.
You can also turn some of the into black and white images or have any orientation you prefer.
The above photos were part of mineral slabs. Some could fit in your hand other were much larger. I find the richness of the colors and shapes just incredible. I’ve used a macro lens on some but I usually crop an area I find interesting. You can buy some minerals or just photography some on the tables.
The Tucson Gem and mineral show if full of wonderful images that make great abstracts. In addition, you can find items from all over the world. There are tables of beads of all colors or numerous other items in abundance.
Enjoy the show it’s all over town. I’m fond of the Kino sport park area it has a assortment to peak my interest.
