Q: Best All Around Canon Lens

A: Do you know?

Upon a recent excursion to a very large cemetary in Omaha Nebraska, I ventured down a steep incline where old stones were kept as well as various objects and trash, a dump...I was looking around for a location to shoot Sidd the Travelin Buddha, when I noticed a few snails on a large stone. I didnt think they were alive , but being careful I nudged this little fellow a bit, an lo and behold he was indeed alive and attached. Having just gotten a new camera (Olympus fe 4030) for my birthday a few days previous, I decided to test out its macro option. It is a relatively inexpensive camera and its capabilities do not equal a slr or anyother expensive model, but it takes good photos. I tested it out on this snail and this is the best shot.

    The soft, muted colours in this are so effective--that green is sublime.
