If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
Henry David Thoreau

Love Henry David Thoreau quotes but using this as my excuse for not keeping up with the daily shoot but today I did – feature a plant

I have been experimenting with a cheap macro lens extension – cost about 10 quid on ebay. It is in pieces so can be broken down and used at different focal lengths. Today I tried it with all three pieces on with my indoor cactus sitting on a very sunny windowsill and it seems a bit softer – as it was very hard to focus and stay still without a tripod.

I did one a while ago that I liked with a shorter length.  I like both but prefer the first one I think – like a different landscape – soft and inviting – not spiky at all…
