One of my great weaknesses in photography has always been closeups. I believe that the first accessory lens I bought after I got my first "good" camera, a Canon FT, was a 50mm macro lens with an extension tube. This evergeen was probably shot using that FD 50mm macro lens.

I've tried very hard to come up with at least one picture from the earliest days but many of my early 35mm slides have faded beyond use. This one of a small boy in the old city of Peshawar, Pakistan was snapped with some sort of cheap rangefinder camera in 1966-67. And, by they way, what is the child playing with? Looks very much like he's grabbed a rat by the tail!

This shot in the Smoky Mountains was made with the new Canon G1 digital as a test of the panorama "stitch" software that comes bundled with it. It is made up of parts of three normal images. The original image file is quite huge, covering 3500X1400 pixels and even in this reduced form it might take a while to download on a slow connection so you might want to stick with the small version unless you really need something larger.

What can I say? This is obviously a very touristy picture of Niagara Falls. Shot in the Summer of 2001 with the Canon G1 camera on an overcast day.
