Watch Detail

Detail of the back of my Seiko 5 automatic watch.

For those unfamiliar with them, the Seiko 5 series is a great introductory line of automatic (self-winding) watches. They run in the $50-100+ range, and keep pretty reasonable time. They also have an exhibition back, so you can see the clockwork inside.

Testing my new Macro

This is one of my test shots with a new (to me) 6omm f2.8D Micro-Nikkor that I bought off of eBay (Also available on Amazon.)

The subject is my Gillette open comb safety razor, which I actually use (almost) daily.

I bought the older (non-AF-S) version of the macro lens for a couple reasons, including cost and better interoperability with extension rings or bellows.
