Up Close & Personal

I never knew a macro lens can be this wonderful! Not until my neighbor generously lends me his Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens this week. It's amazing! With this lens, everything becomes more magical, more poetic, and ... more real. And the "wow" factor! Wow!

And switching talk from macro to telefoto, I also rented the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS from Penn Camera this weekend. It's a heavy lens, a bit cumbersome and very pricy, but I still covet it madly. Perhaps, one day ... you both will be mine, oh beautiful lenses! Meanwhile ... I shall keep on dreaming!
