Green SkittleIn looking around for a subject for another close-up photography session, my eyes settled upon a bag of everyone’s favorite colorful chewy “fruit” candy. I’m so happy with the results that one of the shots has been placed in the folder for rotation into my desktop wallpaper. So colorful!

The first two were at 10x, and the second two are at 20x.



This is the one I chose for my wallpaper. Looks great large.

I’m all ears for possible future subjects of my close-up studies. A colleague has already suggested the rather open ended assignment of “plants”.

  • May I suggest a revival of your recent “mystery close-up, can you guess what it is?” feature?

  • You were a big fan of that, weren’t you, Simon? I might give it a shot.
