You need an MP-E 65mm 1-5x macro for this… as well as the patience of a Saint.

This cheetah cub just ‘killed’ a photographer’s camera bag. He wasn’t about to give it back either!
Is anyone else on 1x.com? I just joined and am horrified at the image rejection rate. I guess it’s akin to a real gallery space being picky about what they hang on their walls. I’ve had at least 1 acceptance, but it’s queued for publication – what’s with ‘queueing’ on the internet?!
A treat for you all today. London has some extraordinary architecture and, as I was due to meet a friend in town anyway, I thought I would pass by a few sites.
This is the Tulip Staircase in Queen’s House, located in Greenwich. I had to work to get this shot and passers by were wondering whether I was injured lying on the floor with a camera on my face!
This one is Canary Wharf DLR Subway station. A subway station!!!
And last, but not least, The British Museum, near Holborn.
Shining examples of British architecture!
Bizarrely, even whilst walking around Singapore goggle eyed in wonder, Cambodia actually made me feel like a foreign tourist. The constant child ‘salesmen’ act, escorted from attraction to attraction, eating separately from guides, etc. We went specifically for the photos, but it’s a little sad that photos are all we really left with.
This shot, another from last summer’s trip to Africa, shows off the amazing perspective altering capabilities from Canon’s TS-E 17mm Tilt-Shift lens. This is a splendid example where a close object, only 12 feet high, can be made to appear far more prominent and majestic within the frame. Ordinarily I am using this lens to correct verticals within the frame, but this sort of scene can be bent to the lens’s will.
