Screwed

Screwed

f/5.6, 1/80, ISO-400, 33mm

It seems like the world is always more interesting when viewed from really up close. If I had the money for another lens, I would almost certainly get a good macro. In the meantime, I’ll have to struggle along with my kit 18-55mm. But I don’t mind so much when it can take interesting shots like this. I have to keep reminding myself that almost anything I find on the ground can be a great picture.

      Thanks so much! It’s always a fun surprise to blow an image up and find out it’s still in focus! 😉

        Thanks! Someday, after my wife is tired of all the Kindles and other gadgets, maybe there will be room in the budget for a lens 🙂

      Couldn’t agree with you more!

    Hate to tell you AJ, but we wives never get tired of “all the Kindles and other gadgets”. LOL But, I would consider a new lens a gadget too. 🙂

    Indeed the macro lens opens a whole world of abstractions, but this is pretty cool too! Thanks for your visit 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words! Your blog is really, really inspiring. I could get lost in their very quickly!

    My mind, so used to nature photography, tricked me into first seeing a caterpillar rather than a screw.

    Great photo. Lots of really good detail and color. I thought you may have used a macro lens for this shot. I have been lucky myself with my Canon kit lens to get great close-up. I got a pretty good deal on my macro lens when I bought my DSLR. And now that I look back, I am glad I did because I may not of purchased one for some time. Keep up the good work!

      When I first got the camera I assumed that the 75-300 zoom would be my go to lens but now I feel like I’ve wasted my money on it. Haven’t used it much at all, and very few of the shots I really like were taken with it. I feel much more at home with macro work.

        Maybe it will be of use and give you the results you’re looking for in the future. One can hope… right?

    Oh, this is good. Love the strength of the screw against the greenery. Great shot!
