Massive Magic Mouse..

I’ve been thinking and mulling over trying some macro joiners for some time (if you don’t know what ‘macro’ photography is, it’s basically photographing small things – insects, flowers etc up close…).

To explain my subject matter a little…
Now I love beautiful design, I like and appreciate ‘things’ which are well engineered, where love, passion and a creative flair have been part of their construction. And in Apple I have found a beautiful partner, a soul mate if you will. Year after year Apple come up with the most beautiful well crafted and innovatively design objects, I honestly don’t know how they do it so consistently, but thank the good Lord they do.
I’m a fairly recent convert to the way of the Apple, and there’s nothing about Apple that I don’t love, not least their mouse, or to give it it’s correct title, the Magic Mouse (it does tricks and is available for children’s parties and small functions :)

For me it seemed a natural step to create my first macro joiner of my magic mouse, it’s design is awesome in it’s simplicity with it’s function simply complicated. Photographing and putting this joiner together was actually much harder than I was expecting, however it’s the first one out the bag and creating this has already taught me things for the next macro joiner (there will certainly be more…I got some great ideas).

Just before I sign off, I have to say I love the juxtaposition of creating a macro joiner – the joiners are so big, and yet the subject matter is so small, it’s like opposites which meet which shouldn’t meet…if you get where I’m coming from…it just makes me smile.
