Gummy Bears on Parade

Welcome to my first Friday Fun post. A new topic to replace Flora and Fauna Friday occasionally. Or it may become a regular Friday feature.

There’s always a few who can’t behave. In this case there’s 3 gummy bears misbehaving. Two are obvious but the third is being a bit sneaky.

Jujubes

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.
