Love is in the Air

I just picked up a new present for myself, you know, because I deserve it. I am the proud owner of a Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro USM and it’s already becoming my favorite lens, even though I’ve only taken maybe 10 pictures with it.

It’s been entirely glum around here  lately so there isn’t much picture-worthy to snap away at, but the beauty of macro photography is that it doesn’t have to be anything big or beautiful to make a cool picture. Nothing like a new weapon in the ole’ Canon arsenal to spark my enthusiasm again! I leave this extremely short entry with the very first picture I took with the new lens, both in color and in black and white. As always, any ideas or suggestions are always welcomed!

Who knew a common weed in the yard could have anything interesting about it?

And a B/W of the same:
