Our new camera lens arrived on Thursday. I have been looking forward to this lens for a number of months, and now it is in my possession. The lens, a cannon EF-S60mm f/2.8 macro usm, opens a whole new view point on food. I thought we were taking close up photographs before, now we can take close up pictures of mustard seeds and feel the details. Understandably, not all food needs to be looked at under an extreme magnifying glass, yet it enables us to see the details. From knife cuts, to the petal structure of a thyme blossom we can now get closer to the food.
The lens gives a new perspective, one which without looking through it, I might not have missed, but now that I can, I must begin to examine everything more closely; it give a new perspective on our food.
