sugar and spice

taken for Our Daily Challenge - What Little Girls Are Made Of

 

Sugar and clove taken with nifty fifty lens reversed. I have never tried this before. I bought a ring adapter but it does not seem to work so perhaps I have the wrong one. I just hand held the lens up to the camera body and experimented with positioning until it appeared to be in focus. Converted to black and white because my sugar looked too yellow in the lamp light.

 

Thanks to Nautical Nancy for suggesting selective color for the clove. I like this much better and think it is a good application for it. It also improved the detail in the clove.
