Default Water Drops

I was playing around this afternoon with a new accessory. My subject was a water bottle with not much water in it. There was drops of water on the inside of the plastic, and it made for a nice, somewhat challenging subject.



And the set-up to take the picture:

Thanks! I'm having lots of fun with this little camera and it seems pretty capable. Thought the water drops came out nicely.

By the way, this is a wonderful topic, I'm going to have fun for the next couple of weeks.

Great picture. Exactly what is the accessory that allowed you to take this shot?

The new accessory is the Q to K adapter. Last month I bought the bite sized Q to carry around in my purse. It didn't take me long to spend more than I had for the camera on the adapter, which lets me use my old K-mount lenses on the Q, as pictured here with the Vivitar Series One 105 macro. The lens looks gigantic compared to the camera.

Nice Macro. I think in time cameras will look more like rear lens caps.

I wouldn't be surprised, but then the lenses will get smaller as well. It's a fun time to be involved in photography.
