I wanted to create a Christmas image that would not be too tacky or catchy. How to go about it I wondered? When in doubt, I turn to my beloved macro lens. My macro lens was the first one I bought. I am always fascinated by the details revealed through it. You suddenly see things that the naked eye would not be able to see. This image is not necessarily representative of that but I just love the magnifying effect. During this project, I will try at some point to bring you images to demonstrate the wonders of this lens.
