Here I am on an Easter Monday blogging when the rest of the country are probably stuck in traffic hoping that the weather will get better and spending the day trying to see how far their patience can be pushed before they crack up with everyone else who set off for a day trip.............me, I'm off to the shops soon and that's about the height of it! I seem to becoming increasingly interested in floral work and in particular macro shots so I managed to bag another abstract type image thanks to the ladies that kindly bought my wife a bunch of flowers in work. I might as well get the best out of them before they end up in the bin in a few days time!
Whilst I don't yet have a dedicated macro lens I thought I'd share a very quick image that I captured yesterday using my Nikon 50mm lens and manual extension tubes. Shooting manual obviously requires a little bit more work but even without spending a fortune on kit you can get fairly good results in my opinion.
I'll hopefully get more opportunities to capture some more macro shots in the next few weeks and months but in the meantime sleep tight and don't let the bedbugs bite!
