Curtis, Leighton, Scott, John - thank you for the feedback. Sometimes with all the equipment changes, fast lenses and new cameras one feels a little left behind and it takes an effort to remind oneself that a picture is a story not pixels!
Very well said Peter and surely one of the primary reasons for the success of this thread. Granted, we always need to find inspiration, especially after many years of shooting. Old venues become stale and we need to look with fresh eyes. Sometimes a different lens helps, sometimes tubes or extenders or reversing rings help. Even a different camera can inspire us to take a fresh look. Great low light performance may motivate us to explore night shooting. It all is part of the adventure.
I've felt in the past that when things are getting stale, moving closer to my subject helps and nothing does that better for me that extension tubes. As with your shot of the typewriter keys, it is possible to find wonderful material when looking close.
