62/365 March 3 - Still on Top

    Newer Older

    I'm preparing for my trip to China and when I bought the currently I was a little surprised to see that Mao is still on the Yuan notes. Hmm.

    I took some detail shots of the money as well - I always enjoy seeing the currency of different countries.

    This shot was taken with my Canon EF 100mm Macro f/2.8L IS USM. Flash fired remotely with a poverty wizard to add sidelight to enhance the texture of the paper.

      The paper looks like it must have a silk component. Wonderful macro!

      Will you (can you?) be posting photos from over there or is there going to be a massive flood of cool images when you get home?

      I'll be offline (ack!) for the whole time. I'm chaperoning a high school field trip, so we have 28 students with us. No computer.
      I'll edit when I get home, and release them in little batches.
      I'll continue my 365 while I'm there, because I'll be taking photos every day, but I'll have to catch up on the posting upon my return.

      This makes such a great macro....love the colours, and the detail of the paper edge.
      Hope your trip goes well....it's pretty stressful being in charge of a group away!
      Seen on your photo stream. ( ?² )
