Last week I promised some more images from the weekend I rented Canon's 65mm Macro Lens. Here they are:
Just for the record, I haven't worked on these images other than to resize them. They could use a little cleaning perhaps, and a bit of sharpening. It's interesting because my eyes don't see the "dust" but the macro lens does. I tried to pick one piece off and it was so teeny that my fingers weren't able to get ahold of it, although it looks large under the lens.
I might be interested in renting a stronger lens than this 5x. Perhaps a multiplier would do the trick.
I'm off to my favorite Farmer's Market to see what I can find. I hope you are all enjoying the fabulous beginning of Summer!

Visiting a farmers' market in late summer showcases many different fruits and vegetables than one can find at a spring or early summer market. I have been meaning to visit the market and in addition, a special one that is located in Minneapolis. Today I decided to merge those two “have-to-dos” together.
I am not certain how to appropriately describe this market to you. Some words that come to mind are: high-end, organic, exclusive, heirloomish, luxurious, gourmetish. The name is Mill City Farmers' Market. It is only open Saturdays from 8-1 through late October.
I do apologize about the images that are fuzzy, my little hand-held ran out of batteries and I had to resort to my (old) phone camera.
Here is what I ended up bringing home.
The prize of my visit is something I have been searching for a few years now. Squash blossoms. They were only two dollars a bunch. I am thrilled to try them. Now, if I can only remember where I saw that recipe!
