So, if you’re just “tuning in” (yep, I’m showing my age here!) to my blog, my birthday was this past Tuesday. The one gift I had my eye on, was a beautiful camera lens. Made by Laowa, it is a 100mm F2.8 2X Macro. It is manual focus, but so much fun to play with!

I’ve found new and interesting things to photograph in the past two days, things I would normally not have fond to be interesting subjects. And I have a list of other things I want to shoot now too! Anything with any type of texture is fair game now!

It’s amazing how in the few short hours I’ve had this lens, I’ve found a new side to my creativity. Little things can bring so much inspiration. What things inspire you? What gets your creative juices flowing?

Below is just one photo, taken in my first photo shoot with my new Laowa lens.

Macro Of A Pansy

Born in Scotland, I moved to Canada in 1980 with my family. I was 10. I became homesick in my 20's, and longed for my beloved Scotland. Happily, I recently returned home for good! I am a photographer, freelance writer and bestselling author, and entrepreneur. I am an animal lover and advocate. My other hobbies include exploring, collecting sea glass, reading and music.
