Urban Macro

A few months ago I purchased a macro lens.  At the time I suggested I wanted to use it for urban macro.  "Urban macro?" one of my friends asked skeptically... "huh?"  That seemed to be the general reaction.

Truth be told, it wasn't a fully fleshed out idea and still isn't, but I think these two photos are a good starting point:

I should also mention that the bottom photo was featured on Chicago Public Radio today.  Click here to see a screenshot.  Chicago Public radio also has an archive where you can see some of my other featured photographs.
