Macro Mania

While the rest of the country was out celebrating a gorgeous Victoria Day holiday, I was stuck at work (this is what happens when you’re a Canadian working for an American company). One good thing about it though is that i didn’t have to worry about preparing supper, the hubby was home and was kind enough to let me just relax.

I walked to the back of the house to see what I could find. There wasn’t much going on there except for the ever-present dandelions. It has been a while since I last took out my Raynox macroscopic lens so I thought I’d use it for these shots. Not bad, not bad at all, if I may say so myself.

I do like the images that this little piece of glass can produce. Not as good as my dedicated macro lens, but it has its own charm.

I stayed outside for a bit, while this little guy cheered me on. He seemed content just sitting there watching me as I contorted myself to get these shots. At one point I looked up and saw his nose pressed on the screen door, I just had to take a shot.

First two images were shot wide open with the Canon 50mm f1.4 with the Raynox macroscopic lens clipped on.
