Photo Challenges


This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: January Close Up or Macro.

Jujubes (or Ju-jubes or JuJubes, take your pick) photographed with a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. An experiment that didn’t really work out as expected. The lens doesn’t seem to produce the swirly, streaking corners and edges when close focused.

Yes, if you want cheap props/close up subjects go to the dollar store. If you want something edible don’t go to the dollar store.

I won’t be picking anymore up from the dollar store. Some colours were sticky and staining the glass light table I had them on. I probably spent more time cleaning the glass than photographing the Jujubes.

I’ve no idea about that. I know they’re from a children’s T.V. show but growing up in the U.K. we may not have got the show.

What I like about British humor is that the comedies are well written and played. There was a series on Mr Brown the night teacher for English classes for adult migrants. I forgot the title though!

Fawlty Towers will always be a classic. I much preferred Last of the Summer Wine to Keeping Up Appearances, both were written by Roy Clarke.
