In God we U.S.A. WT
Posted By: Igilligan, 11-07-2008, 07:16 PM

I thought I had posted these here, but it must have only been in the "place where photo posts go to die".

The first is shot with my 'new to me' kenko 'A' ext tubes that I got from tominjax. On the Vivi 105 with the two larger of the ext tubes. No crop...

The last one is with the jupiter 9 and a m42 Vivitar Series 1 macro adaptor.

It was not really meant as a political statement relating to our recent election (or was it) Just pretty test shots...

I used to do macro when had my old Nikon film camera and I know that macro is hard work. Can you see my neck kinked? Nice work. In both images it's the light and texture that makes the difference.

Off to the gym for me....

thanks everyone... Your support does mean a lot to me...

Gary, that second shot is the bottom of an old glass insulator that is on old telephone/power poles in my child hood. I still see some in OK when I go back and walk the railroad tracks.

PS on a side note I had some of my jupiter 9 shots printed 5x7 and 8x10 out at the old Costco today... I am loving that lens even more, if that is possible.
The 8x10's of my youngest look so good in print.
