I thought I’d take advantage of this photo to talk more about the new iPhone lens a good friend gave me: the olloclip. Their slogan is: “Changing the way we view the world.”

The only real complaint I have about it is that it may seem clumsy; however, it truly does transform my photographs into something like I would be able to take with a prime lens on a SLR.

The damn thing takes my breath away, the truth be told.

With this shot, I saw a gnat buzzing about a bunch of wee white flowers growing out of a crack in concrete; so, I decided to go macro. It took a few shots to get it right, I mean, I’m sure the gnat was terrified to see a gigantic glass mere centimeters away from its face.

Fabulous shot, nonetheless!
