The Last Thing A Bug Sees

If you were a bug in my house this might be the last thing you see: Nothing like a very large shoe to ruin your day, huh? :-)

I thought I'd try out the super-low shooting angle that my new tripod offers. I was able to attach a short post under the legs so the camera was literally touching the ground. I used the cable release and the live-view function to line up the shot. The only problem was my lack of appropriate lighting (the on-camera) flash couldn't pop up) which meant that I had to use a longer shutter. That resulted in some image blur. I like the effect, now I just need to practice these things a little more.
