Favorite Photos: Up Close and Personal

tropical fish at the New England AquariumHow excited am I that today’s #FriFotos theme on Twitter is “close ups?” Maybe it goes back to childhood, when I used to love guessing the back page quizzes in 3-2-1 Contact magazine, which featured a series a of super-close-up images. (Okay, now I’m really dating myself.)

As an adult, I enjoy taking photos with my zoom and macro lenses, so it wasn’t difficult to find pictures to share! Here are a few favorites from my travels.
