I’ve been grooving on my macro lens recently. I’ve wanted one for years and now that I have it, I am feeling the joy. For example, this lichen in Warsaw Caves park. Looks like shag carpet or a furry coat.
The macro lens can make just about anything look like an abstract. The inside of this kettle in Warsaw Caves shows enough detail to be identifiable…
… but in these photos, it looks like a landscape, or just colour and texture.
I find it interesting that after years of shooting vast landscapes I find myself going to the other extreme. How close can I get?
Pretty darn close, apparently.
And when the subject is as lovely as these piglets, it’s hard not to get right in there and say hello.

I’ve been busy for the last couple of weeks, so I haven’t had a chance to post. But I was able to get out and enjoy some spring air this week, so I’m posting quite a few shots to make up for lost posts. Read more “Spring Comes Slowly”

Today was the day to test my macro lens.
Oppenheimer was very patient to sit while I stuck my lens in his face. Right in his face. Read more “Macro Lens Test”
