Being as I have this fantastic macro lens that I hauled all the way to Canada with me (and boy is it heavy!), I decided to try some classic macro photos of flowers. And you know what? I kind of like them. These delicate purple flowers are pretty gorgeous viewed up close. I even managed to achieve bokeh, which is the effect you’re seeing in the blurred background behind the flowers. Apparently it’s some sort of Holy Grail for photographers.
