A ball

Seeing new Macro Monday assignment, I was not at all convinced I can do it. Where can I get any toys? After few days of thinking hard, I saw on the floor the ball my cats play with all the time, making this irritating noise with the small bell inside. I started getting ideas how I can turn it into macro image, this time with my new 105 mm macro lens, Valentine’s Day gift.

I was thrilled when I placed the ball in front of this lens. I had idea after idea how to turn it into an abstract of rays coming out of the central point. Dialing in larger or smaller apertures, the final effect was changing drastically. Half an our later, I had an image I really liked. It was an awesome assignment!
