The best thing about having a macro lens is that, quite literally, a whole new world opens up to you. When I have my macro lens mounted on the camera, I feel like Lyra with her subtle knife, just splitting the air in two and walking into a parallel dimension. Suddenly, even the most common object becomes full of potential, the simplest meal a display of light and reflections.
