My Own Backyard

I recently bought a set of macro filters to use with my 50mm lens. I often find myself wishing for a closer focusing distance, and I don't have a macro lens (yet! stay tuned!), so I thought these were a good option. I had a lot of fun practicing with them in my backyard a few days ago.

I couldn't help but think of Dorothy at the end of The Wizard of Oz. If I ever go looking for my heart's desire, I won't look any further than my own backyard. :)
