View 208: A Reverse Macro Christmas

Thought it would be fun to see a few favorite Christmas things around the house through a reversed 50mm f/1.8 lens using a macro reverse ring.

    I like the Christmas tree, it looks so fresh and green,the golden light and the different colored blue background makes it my favorite. The blue Christmas cookie is fine too, but tell me, do you really eat icecold Christmas cakes? Or did someone forget a cake outside?

    You already know I love macros – what I really love here is how you found things to photograph that look like something else close-up. Very cool!

    I really like these nice macro shots – and a lens like this is just what I put as no. 1 on my list of new equipment to the new camera, so it must be supplemented with such a macro reverse ring! Thanks for your inspiration 🙂

    I am a fool for angel wings. Also for looking at familiar things in unfamiliar ways. And at last I can come visiting to see all this! Life is good.
