Default First shot with new lens

First shot with my new Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens



1/60 sec, f/4, available light (color corrected bulb).

Interesting lens. I think I'm going to enjoy it

A very clear, nicely done photo. I got laughing, however, at being able to see into your pockets: at least $20.55, a really cool money clip, and is that the key to a Caddy?

Thanks for the comments.

I got it from B&H for $479. No, I didn't use a tripod for this shot. It was handheld with available lighting.

Busted! Yes, you appear to know your keys

Nah. My son was here when I was looking at the photo, and he told me what they were. I can't tell one key from another. Can't even tell one car from another except by color. Mine is silver. Unfortunately, a lot of people have silver cars, so you can imagine how much time I spend in parking lots looking for my car.

Oh, mine has that too, except it makes this cute little bleep-bleep sound and the headlights flash. The problem is that, by the time I get back out of the store, the cars I purposely parked between have been replaced by hulking SUV's that block all sight of my car. I can hear my wee car calling to me, but I don't know from where.
