Sunset was at 4:52 pm today. Early! Just before, by the river, I took some photos of the leaves changing color, and caught the sun between two buildings.
Note there is no “green dot lens flare” in the sunset river photo. I found a great app to retouch things like that. It removes all sorts of problems from photos. It can even remove hanging wires! Also, if you click the photos you can see them full size.
I recorded this little butterfly in slo-motion this morning at a neighborhood park.
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.
Some photos I took 4 years ago today just popped up in Google Photos, and I thought it was worth a re-share. These were taken with my iPhone at the time, using an attachable macro lens I picked up.
