  1. A new lens! Yippee! I love the old glass you photographed. I also have some antique carnival glass. (Does that mean we're antiques, too?) Did you use a tripod with the macro lens? I have trouble with camera shake if I try to hand-hold the macro. (You know how much I love the tripod...(not).

    1. Barb, would you rather be called an antique or vintage??
      I do have my tripod set up downstairs next to my worktable, but did not use it for this. I have fairly good luck with the DX lenses, and this is one.

    1. Haha, it took me 2 years to find my bean pot after we moved the last time.

      I am sure I will have fun with my macro lens. It is something I have wanted for a long while.

    1. Thank! I have blue and a few gold juice glasses. All are very old. I wonder if carnival glass is still made?
