Making Magic


This is a picture of a sprinkler.  I know, pretty boring.
It's so boring, it's not even my photo, or my sprinkler.
I mean, who takes a picture of their sprinkler?

But, add some sunlight and a zoom lens gone wacky and...


The sprinkled water turns into small squares of white paper or...


A sky-full of magical, shimmering bubbles.
Yeah, that's right, I have a magic sprinkler :)

  3. Very pretty and looks like fun.

    As a follow up to my macro photography comment....I was able to take some wonderful macros with my Lumix superzoom also. The Raynox lens attaches to it as well. I only bought my DSLR in April this year. I find I can get closer with my Lumix + Raynox than with my DSLR+ 50mm+ Raynox but don't have the same amount of control over depth of field.
    Here's a good example of macro with my Lumix super zoom (DMC FZ35) by itself before I bought the Raynox.

    My children manage to take some great macros with their little pocket cameras too. A matter of experimenting with what you have available.
