Okay... so it's a macro lens captured shot of a jam jar...But ask me the story behind this shot and I bet you I can glamourize it above and beyond what you might expect... especially, given that this was my first contact with such a sexy type of lens.
For a start the macro is all about the big picture stuff, yet still being able to illuminate the finer details up close and personal. For those of us who like to see what enlarged fonts may look like through a camera lens or see a flower from an ant's point of view, then this lens is for you. Like it is for me. Oh, and this jam jar is not so ordinary... it was at least a well travelled one, being part of my breakfast on the Paris bound...Eurostar.
