Shortly after getting my first SLR camera in 25 years
in March 2011, I also picked up a couple of macro lenses.
This, literally, opens up a whole new world of photography!
The first 22 photos of this album were taken at the Elkton Community Education Center
Oregon, in July 2011.
The next next 8 pictures were taken right in my own backyard, in the same month. Just goes to show that you don't have to travel far to get some great shots!
The last photo was taken even closer to home — right in my own office!
Don't miss the macro photos from other years:
In addition, you can see all of my macro images together in the Macro Magic (All Years)
