Take a close look at this shot and tell me if you can figure out what I’ve photographed. Is it a pitted clay pathway with straw piled beside it? Is it a narrow Outback track being choked by some vivid, noxious weed?
Let me give you a different viewpoint. This is the same object, photographed from a slightly different angle. Here’s another clue. I was using the SMC Pentax-DA macro lens when I shot this series of images.
Okay, now that you’ve identified the object, here’s the definitive view of it (below). I was holding a yellow Slazenger tennis ball in my left hand and holding my camera in my right hand. To get a different perspective and a fresh angle on each shot, I just kept rotating the ball.
