Well, I’m not satisfied with this one. I’m not satisfied with much of anything today, seeing as I spent the whole day effing with my website after a plugin update hosed everything, and the whole week trying to shoot “Don’t you wonder sometimes about Sound and Vision” and failing miserably due to lack of imagination.

But maybe I’m being overly critical.

Either way, I think it might be time to pony up the bucks for a proper macro lens… the Zomb-E series is a fabulous toy, but it breaks down a bit in cases like this. Of course, a proper macro lens would be of little help when the concept and execution are as poor as this. I’ll think on it a bit.

The lyric comes from “Spinning Away” by Brian Eno and John Cale, from their album Wrong Way Up. I can do without most of that record, as it sounds to my ear like bad 80s music for grown ups, but “Spinning Away” is pretty awesome, imo.

D7000. Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 Zomb-E Series. ISO100, 1/250th, f/11. SB-700, zoomed to 24mm, at 1/16th power, hard camera left, and triggered via a pair of Cactus V5 triggers. And the pixels were stretched to within an inch of their 1’s and 0’s in Aperture.
