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:
Nikon D50 with 60mm Nikkor Micro lens, 1/200sec at f5.
Nikon D50 with 60mm Nikkor Micro lens, 1/500sec at f3.3.
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.
