A Closer Look at the Familiar — CMMC

Hi all 😃 My entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: March Close Up or Macro.

I thought I’d do some macros of a familiar object!

On these last two shots I was varying the aperture to see the effect; the one on the left has a very narrow field of focus (f/2.8), whilst the one on the right (f/9) has a lot more of the shot in focus.

f/2.8 on the left, f/9 on the right

Tuesday Photo Challenge — Zoom Lock

HI all 😁 My entry for Dutch goes the Photo! Photo Challenge — Lock.

This photo has two locks; the zoom lock and the mounting lock mechanism.

We also have love locks on the Tradeston footbridge over the Clyde.

Fan Of… #8 — Lens Mug

This was a great gift from my wife; an insulated mug that looks like a Canon 100mm Macro Lens. The lens hood is a cookie holder, and the little selectors on the side actually move. Definitely NOT a fan of the last pic, an empty coffee mug; I’m off to the kitchen 😂
