Failed miserably at getting a decent macro pic. So here is a (some what) bad pic. Can you guess what it is?

I really have no idea, except that it has a T on it :). So guessing at a glue spreader, cant wait to find out though, was it with the reveresed lense?

You got it Fother... back to you.



The zoomed in one is with +17 magnification filters (+1 +2 +4 and +10).
I tried the reverse with the 24mm, got a small circle that did magnify, although my own rocking movement messed it up a bit. I'll do one of the pics later on and post up. Stamp thread ;)

Nice lines .. colours are good too.

I think it is a picture frame... But I don't have a plan for any other macro ones so if someone else guesses it ;) ...

ok, had to cheat a bit and crop a macro shot of mine to get this bit. You might guess it straight away.
