The Independent - In Macro - Must view very Large!

As the title and the image says, it's a shot of the Indepent Daily paper (a national daily in the UK) - this was as i mention in the 'rollup' image before this, that it was one of my very first attempts at testing out the all important (to me) macro capabilities of my new camera, bought literally moments earlier, we settled in a nearby pub beer garden in the early evening sun, to settle and let the spin of Tottenham Court Road and the Techno-Gadgetry-Computer-Camerarama shops calm and ease from our spinning heads, as i assess with a nervous excitement whether i have , after all, made the right purchase for me.

I think so ;) - if you have time, view this image in VERY large, it was a shot i so nearly deleted as a tester , but the more i looked the more i liked, the date coming just neatly into frame, the title of the publication, the obvious conclusion of the name in the headline, taken during the summer *before* he was made the 1st black president of the USA(?), and above all , as far as my camera satisfaction is concerned, the fibres in every sheet of the gently curved paper, and the Andy Warhol style huge Bl&W dot matrix image. . yeah, it grew on me, and i think it has something to say for itself, perhaps, :)
