Macro Lens!

After stalking Craigslist for a while and dreaming of getting a macro lens, while fully expecting it to stay firmly in my dreams, last week I found a steal! It is from the 70s, but apparently one of the best macro lenses Nikon ever made, and people still prefer it over the new ones. So without further ado, I give you yarn, up close and personal.

Very cool. Even something as simple as yarn can be art up close.

Thanks! I'm having a blast playing with it, so expect to see many more macro photos in the future. :)

I love these. I would love to have a camera that could take shots like these. Someday it'll happen!

Thanks Kate! I thought it would easily be a few years before I would be able to get my macro lens, but a little craigslist stalking, and voila! Just keep your eye out and you'd be surprised what you can find.
