Photo of the Day (8/12/2007)

I have to admit that my first reaction to this shot by Gadling Flickr contributor sarah.and.michael, was “someone got a new macro lens!”. As an amateur, very infrequently professional photographer myself, I immediately wanted to go to Ebay and buy myself a new macro lens. Alas, at $400 a pop, though, I think I’ll still hold back. And so, in the meantime, I have to content myself with lovely photos like this one, that shows a couple of flower stems in front of the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
