Quarantine Fun with a Macro Lens

Like many of you reading this, I’ve spent a lot more time at home these past few weeks as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that is rapidly spreading across the globe. I’m fortunate enough that my job can be done remotely (though I do miss actually seeing my team and colleagues in person), but it’s the personal side of these uncertain times that I think has the largest effect.

It’s odd to not be able to go over to a friend’s house to hang, or to have to tell your parents that it’s in the best interest of their health and safety that I don’t visit for a while. There’s only so much Netflix one can watch, so many books one can alphabetize (which do you prefer, by author or title?) and so many recipes one can cook. One has to find new ways to cure the boredom.

So, this weekend I charged up the batteries on my 11-year old Nikon D3s, took the caps off my favourite ring-shooting (like, wedding rings) macro and went on a search around the house for interesting objects to capture through my lens.

Here’s what I found. Some of them are quite obvious, but some are not. Can you identify them all?

While I still have your attention, why don’t you go check out my photography site for more!
