Observed on the side of a walking track… Human made or natural?

Leaf Scan

Still shooting my way through the first roll of film since Rollei’s come back from repair. I was working at Photo Warehouse the other day and talked to a guy on the phone who wanted a scanner to use as a macro. This got me to thinking that I could use my CanoScan 9000F to shine light through stuff, like leaves… Anyway here goes my first attempt with a partially decomposed leaf I found on the steps up to my house 🙂

A couple of macro shots (aka mushroom hunting)

I have always enjoyed playing round with macro lenses (in this case extension tubes) and find that you usually dont get interesting images unless you spend a bit of time looking for different angles. Both these images were shot underneath so you dont get the cliche’d looking straight down on the rose (yawn) shot.
