Macro frenzy!

After waiting for over 5 years, I managed to acquire an amazing macro lens with 1:1 magnification. It is none other than the Sigma 105mm F2.8. I’ve been playing with it for a few months now and wanted to share some of my recent work.

Enjoy!

Metamorphosis

Crawling you may be right now
But hold your head up high
It’s really caterpillars that
Turn into butterflies

Beauty Within Me

Humans are, by nature, superficial beings and try as we might, we form an initial (instinctual) assessment of a person (or a thing) by the way he, she or it looks. What we need to train ourselves in is to ignore the first impressions, peel off the layers and develop a deeper understanding in order to truly judge someone (or something).

Flowers, however, are beautiful inside and out. Enjoy!

This, right here, is undoubtedly one of my most favorite photographs and I think words are redundant to describe this piece. It was taken at Stratford Butterfly Farm at Stratford-upon-Avon, UK. Enjoy!
