59/365: Macro Monday

untitled.jpg

So, I wanted to play with the oil and water macros today. But, I realized that we didn't have any clear oil (only olive, peanut, canola etc, etc.) in the house. Thus began the "what can I use instead?" search.

Above the washer and dryer I spotted a can of "Camp Dry" in the cabinet. Mostly silicone. That's an oil. Should do the trick.

Then I noticed the large "This product contains susbtances known to the State of California to cause cancer" sticker on the top of the cap. Hmm... will have to discuss with the man of the house if we really need to keep this bottle around any longer.

However, because I really wanted to do the oil and water thing, I determined that I would spray and back away and hold my breath for a bit until the fumes dispersed and that would certainly lower my risk of harm. Right? Right.
(Don't worry... the kids were in bed and I was in the garage with both doors open.)


Next time, I think I'll just wait until I can hit up Target for some baby oil...

It looks like it was worth the effort. I like it. Isn't it something, the lengths that we go to get a photo?

As if I didn't have a serious case of macro envy before! Alas lenses will have to wait a few more months. Until then, I will live vicariously through your Monday posts. Please keep them coming! :)
