Day Nine. And the blizzard of 2009 is upon us. Not exactly the most exotic of locations, but we were stranded in Alexandria and I had my camera, so I did what I do best. I took an absurd number of pictures and came out with a few good ones. As always, the lighting proved to be my biggest enemy. And I, once again, rediscovered my need for a real macro lens. While the zoom lens is good for faking the effect, it just doesn't cut it for real macro situations.
