Why do I love macro photography? The vast unexplored territory and surprises in an ordinary room, every square inch a landscape; the stillness required when moving a millimeter pushes your subject out of focus; the quiet contemplation inherent in observing at that scale. Nature just looks good up close. 

Shooting with my new lens, Tamron’s 90mm, is a joy so far. It’s the (unannounced, unadvertised?) version with an internal motor, so it joins the short list of interesting primes that autofocus on the D40. Nice find. I have photosets up of raindrops in the woods and an art studio, and here are some old favorites.
