Yes, it's 80 degrees Fahrenheit in Virginia, balmy weather compared to my Army basic training in the sandy woods of South Carolina during August 1992.

Today is USPS anxiety day, I am eagerly awaiting a very overdue Helios 44-2 lens that I purchased through eBay from a guy in Ukraine almost a month ago. Ironically, I shot this with another lens I bought through eBay from a guy in Ukraine.

Nikon D5100, macro extension tube, Industar 50-2 50mm @ f/16.

The good news:17 years, 8 months and going strong.

The bad news: that's my pinky, the ring no longer fits in the proper finger so 99% of the time I carry it in my key chain. And (according to Ivette) I probably should have used some hand cream before taking the photo.

The reflected lights are Newer Macro ring lights. They are very inexpensive and extremely handy whenever you need to take a tricky macro. You can either use the whole ring or turn off either the left or right halves. The power supply uses either AA batteries or AC with a provided adapter.
