I found this spent .25 bullet in the courtyard a couple of weeks or a month ago. I looked down, and it was just laying there, perhaps left over from July 4th celebrations in the neighborhood, though how it escaped leaf blowers, vacuum cleaners, and my keen vision I’ll never know… Anyways, I thought it might make a good Macro subject.

I used (again) the 75-150 f/3.5 E Series, reversed, on 49mm worth of extension tubes, and shot at (if I recall) f/8 (though it looks like the focus is a bit off… either that or I was at 3.5…), iso 100, for 1 second. Lighting provided by the same desk lamp seen in earlier shots, with a small mirror strategically placed to bounce a bit of light back on it.
