I haven't abandoned project 365, despite all appearances to the contrary. I'll try to get caught up over the next few days.
I read that I could take my lens off of my camera, flip it around, and use it to take macro photos without a macro lens. I was totally geeked by this, thinking this was a quick and easy way to do something DIFFERENT and REALLY COOL with my camera, without taking a bunch of time to learn how to change settings, etc (which I really DO want to do. you know. some day). But every time I tried this the screen warned me that the lens was not attached and refused to take a picture. So my camera is too smart to fall for this trick, it seems. Buy the expensive lens, it tells me, you cheapskate. (if any of you manage to do this, let me know) This is what I thought was going to be my first attempt at at a macro:
