Last week I got a new toy for Stevie; it’s this cool macro lens attachment designed for iPhones that I got from Photojojo. As much as I focus on street photography, I really love doing macro shots because it’s like journeying into a whole different world or landscape. Perspectives change so that ordinary objects become seemingly alien territories.
I had a lot of fun with some random coins that I found around the house, including an Australian dollar that somehow made it’s way into my possession. I used the lens to get a cool shot of a quarter too.
Here is a close-up of a fork:
One thing I did realize is that the lens also is kind of a microscope that shows you EVERYTHING, which may be a bad thing depending on what you’re looking, especially if it’s your computer keyboard. Gross! Seeing that up close made me go run for disinfectant, q-tips and anti-bacterial spray when I saw what it looked like up close.
That aside, I love my new lens and Stevie is thrilled with it. Of course I will be sharing as I continue to copiously shoot
