The above, my friends, is an Excerpt from the Prologue in this great book: "The Smaller Majority"
I managed to get "The Smaller Majority" book with the help of a friend from Singapore :). Just reading the excerpt of the "The Smaller Majority" book already convinced me that it's a book worth getting. The great thing about this book is, it's not just about slr macro photography, it's about understanding and loving "The Smaller Majority"!
Well, don't just take my words for it. Read the excerpt yourself, and browse other pages too while you are at it :)
Lots of great images in it.
