Sure, an oldie but a goodie. Now in my defense I speak English, French and a little German. I don’t, however, have any idea what is being written into the comment fields of my blog (see here and here). I found a Norwegian to English translator on the web (but have since lost it… I’ll find it again I know, if only IE had some sort of history feature ;)) and had fair results. Perhaps I should try Swedish or Finnish… I’d really love to know what this person has taken the time to write. Anyone speak… well… whatever?

Micro-tastic!

Tonight I borrowed a couple of micro photography lenses from Phillip (thanks dude!) and played around taking close up pictures of anything that came close.  I found taking pictures of the dog a challenge since the depth of field on these lenses are a touch on the narrow side. 🙂  At any rate, stuff looks really cool when you can get really close.

For the curious, the lenses I borrowed are a 60mm 2.8 Nikkor and a 105mm 2.8 Nikkor.  I put the pictures which were mildly in focus in my micro gallery.  I took the pictures of the dog with the 105mm and the others with the 60mm.
