A couple of years ago somebody showed me some pictures of macro photography. They looked interesting, however, it did not resonate with me. Now, many years later, I read some booksand looked at videos on Youtube. It turns out that macro photography is a lot more than taking pictures of plants and insects and laying on the ground. So, there was a growing interest.After realising that my regular lenses would not suffice, I looked at possible cheap adjustments:- close-up filters are put on a regular... continue reading

So, the other week my parents were coming up to visit and I really needed to get the house a little cleaner, bake some muffins, make some ice tea, etc. Basically I needed to organize some things, and generally run around spastically, doing random frantic things in the usual attempt to try to fool my parents into believing I am a lot less disorganized than I actually am.
