    Wear & Tear

    I wondered what makes a glass that has been through the dishwasher too many times, look dull and full of stains. So, I took my macro lens…

    Totally Worn Out

    This is what happens when pushing a little hobby motor way beyond its normal lifespan. One of the 3 commutators has worn to the point that it broke off, and the others don't look too great either. The motor could still run in this condition when given a push, but obviously it barely had any...

    Vostok Amphibian

    It's starting to show some signs of age. It also doesn't run as accurately anymore as when I bought it almost 2.5 years ago, it had extended periods when it would deviate no more than 1 second per day.

    Bug

    No idea what this is. It was about 20mm in size. With the increasing temperatures, we also seem to be getting insects that we didn't have before…

    Wet begonias

    Making the best of the dreary weather…

    Ladybug

    Hedge bindweed

    These are difficult to capture due to their color and shape. Also, I was sure I had switched to a lower ISO than this, but the Exif (and noise) proves otherwise…

    Cornflowers

    Another case of aiming for a shot when the damn things weren't moving due to the wind for once. The few passers-by must have thought I'm crazy, and I probably am.

    Lavender, with an inhabitant

    Trying to get good shots of tiny flowers and bugs swaying in the wind with only some reflected evening sunlight… I must be masochistic. The bug is less than 7mm in size.

    Caught. (Warning: spider)

    Those with arachnophobia or a general fear/repulsion for insects may want to skip this one… The fly must have been freshly caught at this moment, it was still struggling. I had to aim in between moments when it moved. The spider had retreated to its hiding place shortly after, obviously...

    Digitalis and Lemon thyme blossom

    Find the little spider.

    Impressions

    Some more random shots for the macro junkies Something interesting happens with this last one where things are just going out of focus, some kind of interaction of the light with the curvature of the surface. Here's a higher resolution crop that shows this:

    At last…

    … I have a proper macro lens, the classic M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8. Gotta catch 'em all (pencil topper I found in a bicycle parking lot, it seems I actually caught a Pokemon). Not a CD or DVD, but a magneto-optical disc, the same technology as was used for MiniDisc. Trying in-camera focus...
