new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

eye contact

eye contact

i shot this with the canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro plus a marumi close-up +4 filter, using EOS utility's remote live view. you can see the reflection of my eye in the software window on the monitor.

you can also see my contact lens.

i started out trying one of those super-close-ups of the iris, but it really isn't that interesting so i backed off.

  1. Oh love, LOVE this one!

    I don`t like Facebook and I find it responsible for the deserted blogosphere.

    Killed my Facebook page sometime ago.

  2. the blogosphere is quieter these days. i've been missing it.
