Mighty Macros!


A lot of times I try to zoom out, or step back from something, to gain perspective. In this case I got in a close as I could. Closer than possible with my eyes. And as usual, the change in perspective was breathtaking.

My yellow Pentax is approaching retirement. So in a panic I picked up a used Lumix GX1 for $150. The camera looks and feels almost exactly like the previous micro four thirds camera I had from 2010-2011, the GF1 (which I loved). But with it I snagged the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 macro lens (which also works well as a telephoto – 120mm equivalent) and subsequently had my mind blown. Take a look at what I’ve found.

This could become addicting. Next step is probably a microscope!
