POTW: Post Office Macro

Another macro shot. This time of an old post office box cover. Bought this at a flea market years ago. All you get is the front door. My father made a box for it and I use it to lock up various keys and stuff. Nothing too secure since you can get into it by just sawing off one of the sides.

I set the focus to the shortest I could and moved the box back and forth until it was in focus, so this is as close up I can get. My lens is rated to 1:1 magnification. Meaning the image the lens projects on to the sensor is the same size of the image. Another way to say that is if you removed the sensor from the camera and put it right against the object, that's the size it would be. You can zoom in real close with some lens extenders I'm thinking of getting at some point.

As I am posting this I'm still contemplating what I'm going to do for next week's picture, so probably going to be another macro of something around the house.
