When I was in Akihabara yesterday I got an inexpensive “crip on” macro lens for any smartphone that can take photos between 10 and 23 mm away. It also comes with a fish-eye and wide lens, but today I played a bit with the macro lens on my iPhone while outside.
It’s pretty hard to focus because the slightest tremor will move the subject out of the very limited field of view. But these came out well I thought.
I roused myself from a late afternoon nap, saw the rain had stopped, and so decided to go for a bike ride along the river. Here are a couple of photos near sunset. And also a few flowers taken after dark last night on a walk.
I cycled down to the Nakagawa and can confirm that the sakura are, indeed, starting to bloom. Just a very few so far. I believe the prediction is for full bloom about 10 days from now.
