    Got bored. So took a several macro shots, hand-held.
    Taken with the Pentax istD.
    1st shot is with the Pentax 105/2.8 lens, a 28mm tube extension, with a close-up lens attached.
    2nd and 3rd shots are with the Pentax 50/4 macro lens, a 28 mm tube extension, with a close-up lens attached. ISO 200, Shutter speed of 1/30 and 1/60. Photos were auto-fixed in PS Elements. C'est tout. Thanks for looking:

    Tres bien...love those embers on the wick. Good shots, especially knowing they're handheld!

    Cool series, I like the way the incandescent wick showed up. You can always count on boredom to provide some good photographic opportunities :)
