We'll take a break today from parades and parties because I just received some macro extension tubes. These are neat devices that enable one to use ordinary lenses as if they were macro (magnifying) lenses. All they are is hollow tubes that fit between your camera and the lens. These enable you to focus on things from much closer so they appear larger. Above is an example.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
