Birthday Celebrations

Well, 365 days are done for 2017, and to finish the year off in style (and to celebrate my birthday) we’re eating this guy...

I’ve never had lobster before, and neither I nor my wife could bring ourselves to dispatch one ourselves, so we bought tails instead. I cannot believe how stunning they are both mechanically and visually - felt the need to photograph this beauty. Apologies to anyone who now thinks I’m a barbarian, but I’m hoping it tastes as good as it looks!

I stareted out on my photographic journey just using a camera phone, mostly to irritate my mate Kev, who’s a Canon snob - it’s delightfully fitting that I’m ending the year using a clip on macro lens that fell out of a Christmas cracker for this close up!

Happy New Year one and all - thanks for following and for so many supportive and encouraging comments. I hope 2018 brings you further enjoyment and fulfilment, and that you heed the great Ansel Adams quote:

“12 significant photographs in any one year is a good crop”

Thanks for looking!

Happy birthday and happy new year. Fantastic macro - I would never have guessed lobster though.
