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 got to spend the weekend camping at Port Burwell Provincial Park.
It was ostensibly a birding weekend, but I don’t have lenses for wildlife photography. I did check out the birds, but my photos were much closer to the ground. Read more “Port Burwell”

My Going Down to Jackson video is being projected for two more nights in downtown Peterborough (time and location details available by following the link).
