    I've created a new gallery to showcase macro shots of just "normal" stuff that i find lying around. Its been pretty fun. Since I lack a true "macro" lens, i tape another 28-90mm lens backwards to the front of a regular 28-80mm lens, and it makes a supermacro lens. Its a huge pain, but fun when it works. here's the link for the gallery, thanks for looking

    I really really love the baseball one. It is such a classic looking shot. Something I would frame and hang in my son's bedroom!

    I gotta agree with everyone else.
    They are all great...but that baseball one is WOWSER!!!

    You should take a shot of you camera set up with that lens taped backwards to the other and let us all see how that looks...lol.
    Does it make it super akward and heavy?
    This just totally blows my mind.
    Great way to make do with what ya got though!!!

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. Yeah, maybe i'll take a picture tomorrow of my setup...it is quite a bootleg job, pretty awkward. Use lots of ducktape and a tripod for sure
