    Just got the new Kenko MFT extension tubes. Wanted to sse just how close I can get. Here a self portrait in the end of a ball point pen tip using the Panasonic Leica 45 mm macro and the 16mm Kenko tube.

    Not the sharpest, but you can see some texture of the ball tip.

    Crazy! I was trying to come up with a creative self portrait idea a few days ago and can say with certainty that ball point pen reflection never even hit the list to try.

    Whoa! Great idea :) Some time ago I was thinking about some unusual self-portrait for my forum avatar and I had no idea...

    I've keep noticing my reflection in my rabbit's eyes when I take her photo (which is a dangerous thing when I'm photographing in my old underwears!!!!)... I've been thinking about doing something with that, so thanks for the inspiration!

    Closer yet!

    Next week I'm going to combine the 16 mm tube with the 10 mm and try to get closer. Also going to try a different angle so the lens does not appear as the big black spot!

    Appreciate all the positive comments
