I fetched my new lens out of the Fedex Ground Shipping Depot yesterday. Now, I have a Nikkor AF-S Micro 85mm 1:3.5G ED VR lens! You may never see another regular photo out of me again. Am I having fun yet? Whadda’ you think? I thought I ought to warn you to either un-folow me or hold on! 🙂 Here are the first ones I snapped tonight.
This is one of the hard, bark-like parts of a chew toy for Rita. These things are so hard that she can’t break them. They’re the oddest looking things.
This is the little Buddha who is carved on top of an old soapstone chop or seal that I bought somewhere a long time ago. I only noticed his broken nose when I saw the Macro. He’s very tiny. I have no idea what the characters on the bottom of the seal mean. I used to use him with cinnabar sealing wax when I could still write letters.
I am astounded at by what a small detail looks like in macro! This is Christmas all over again! 😉
This bird is a detail on the side of vase near my desk.
This is one of my favorite letter openers. I always liked her. I like the feel of pewter anyway. I like her attitude. The way she holds her head interests me.
Does that make your eyes go funny? It does mine. I’m in a bookcase now! (Is that a song lyric?) Are you guys laughing at me? That’s okay. I’m laughing too!
I’m having entirely too much fun! Obviously, this is a bookmark. One of those brass hook ones. The edge of a photograph frame is on the right side.
I like the design on the mocha cup. Of course, it really isn’t quite that color! 😉
This is the first macro I shot. It’s a small detail from my husband’s urn. The urn sits on the mantle. I enjoy the scenes on it, and, of course, I like having his ashes at home.
Another detail from a hanging thing inside Rita’s pagoda. The “hair” at the top is frayed hemp rope.
I leave you with Boy. A very small photograph inside a larger frame. It sits on my desk and makes me grin every time I look at it. Ah, that sweet Boy.
I hope I didn’t bore you to death. I’ve had such a good time snapping things tonight. Thanks for looking! 😉
