Most cameras, whether digital or film, have a mark of tulip flower on it. I don't know who decided that it is the mark of close-up mode. When we choose the tulip mark and take a picture, the focus is set to very near and we can get a close-up photo. In the mode, the depth of field is set to very shallow and we can get a blurry background image. By using close focus and blurry background, we can sometimes get unexpected, vivid, close-up pictures. This picture of a fern I took in the Stanley Park while cycling. It was just a fern but by only closing up to it, I could get this beautiful image. Of course I have no special macro lenses or lighting system. I used just a compact digital camera with macro mode. Anyway, there are a lot of people around me who don't know what the tulip mark on their cameras is. One of my friends, who have a very good digital camera, believed that she can take a vivid picture with the tulip mark on and she always took picture with the tulip mark. Of course her pictures were always out of focus.
