"Too Close" Tuesday

Even though I have a reader count of, oh, 1 person or so...I want to start a weekly competition on my blog. I'm going to call it "Too Close" Tuesdays. I will post one macro photo of something fairly common, and you (whoever reads this) can comment and guess what it is. Starting today.

Now, I just want to be clear that at the moment, I have limited photography equipment. I shoot with a Nikon D3000, set to go with an 18-55mm lens (the one that came with the camera)...Recently, I read about how turning an extra lens backwards and shooting through it can create a macro effect. Since I've wanted a macro lens since the day I got my camera, I HAD to try this. The problem was, I didn't have an extra DSLR lens. So...I took the lens off my 35 mm film camera and HEY! It works!! I'm still very new to it, and am still trying to figure out how to hold both of them at the same time, but I think I'm making progress...

Well, anyway...Here's the first photo:

 (Hint: YUM!)


  1. It's a fork that's being used to eat ice cream and ...chocolate cake or a brownie.

  2. RIGHT!! It is a fork with cake and ice cream on it! Nice work. =)

    You win.....Absolutely Nothing!! Ha.
