Magic happens in the minutiae of life that we are usually blissfully unaware of. Seeing the details of the ordinary up close gives a new perspective on the wonders the world holds.
I have always wanted a macro lens but could never justify the cost of one. Instead I used the lens I had to get as close as I possibly could.
Then for Christmas my darling husband surprised me with a beautiful new Canon macro lens. I almost wept with joy! A whole new world of photography awaited.
These are my first attempts at using it. It will take some getting used to but I am already thoroughly enjoying myself.
