    I normally don't take black and whites, but this one turned out neat.

    Taken with my Albinar 28mm 2.8

    Yeah, I normally don't go for B&W either, but I don't think color would add anything to this shot. :)

    I usually shoot B&W and I agree, this one's pretty neat

    Thanks guys. While I don't discourage nor dislike B&W's, I just don't think that way. However with this one I just thought it would look better.

    Nice B&W shot there Dave.

    You got me curious about that Albinar 28mm 2.8 so I had a wee dig about it and found out that it's a macro. Apparently it's well made, because it's a rebranded (identical) Japanese Tokina EL - looks like she's a good little macro lens.

    Ya I had never heard of the brand either, but it seems to be taking good shots.

    Very nice. It's funny but I took almost that same shot yesterday. Must have been something in the air. :p

    Another shot of the bike.

    Probably should have had the focus on the bolt in the middle of the tire.
