The more I see of this lens-camera combination - the Olympus 60mm macro + the GX8 - the more I like it. I know the GX8's many stellar qualities (I have one myself) - but apart from the many obligatory close macro shots of insect life, I haven't seen all that many photos with the Olympus macro that I really, really liked. But now, looking at this photograph, I'm rethinking all that. Nicely seen - and beautifully 'realized'.
Damn! not only is this a brilliant image - and a great photograph!!! - but it is giving me a bad case of hitherto unrecognized Tintin-and-Snowy-toy-lust. But the shot in and of itself is.....well, the only adjective that comes close is.... 'classic'.
