42

I’m always on the lookout for new sightings of “42,” and the other day I noticed one right in my hands on my camera’s lens. But how can I take a picture of the lens itself? I tried a bit with a mirror and then with a telephoto lens, but wasn’t satisfied. So I was psyched today to get my new macro lens delivered!

Why “42”? It’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything in “The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,” and I started taking the photos back when I participated in a weekly 42-word microstory challenge. The challenge ended, but I kept taking the photos.

More photos of tiny things will be coming your way in the days ahead, I’m sure.

Thanks for your views and comments -- always much appreciated.

I adore Hitchhiker's Guide and smiled at the number 42 the minute I saw your picture! We listened to it on the radio all those years ago when it was first broadcast and still enjoy it now.

@casablanca I never heard it on the radio. How fun! I read it way back in high school, and then I passed it on to my kids when they were that age.
