Reign by Xerces Reign by Xerces
I was home ill today, so I decided to do some still life macros after being inspired by my good friend *AphexPhoton to get my macro lens out again. I was able to set this up while listening to some good music and being wrapped in a blanket, which is always a bonus.
It's been a long while since I did some proper macro shots, and I decided to use some of the beautifully bright peacock feathers I bought to make jewellery with. I adore the colours of peacock feathers, and although this is clichéd as hell, I still love it.
This is named after Reign by U.N.K.L.E. featuring Ian Brown
I am the lightning, I am the heat
I am the reign, reigner, reigner, reign all day
I am the reign
I'm gonna reign this way again
I am the reign

I am the spark
Before the blaze
I am the raindrop out at sea
I cause the ripples that become the crashing waves (crashing waves)
I am the reign, reigner, reigner, reign all day
I am the reign (I am the reign...)

You thought a different day had come
A day you thought the earth was done
And if you could have said it all
I know you would have said it all
You thought a different day had come
A day you thought the earth was done
And if you could have said it all
I know you would have said it all

I am the reign
I'm gonna reign this way again (this reign way again)
I am the reign, reigner, reigner, reign all day

You thought a different day had come
A day you thought the earth was done
I am the reign
And if you could have said it all
I know you would have said it all
I am the reign


U.N.K.L.E. are greatly overlooked, and I find most people have heard their music but have no idea who they are! I command you to check them and their extensive discography. They've done a fuckload of collaborations- this song being just one of them.



Done with a Canon EFS 60mm f/2.8 macro usm lens.

I enjoy your photography very much. This is one of my favorites. I have added it to my "art that inspires me" journal.

Absolutely stunning!
I love how it's partially blurred and yet focused; also the feather through the droplet, sparkles, just beautiful.

personally, Burn My Shadow is my favorite by them.

It's been argued that the best music video is, Rabbit In your Headlights.
Have you heard of that argument?

Others think it's A-Ha's Take On me, the list goes on.

do you like burn my shadow?
It's nice to meet another U.N.K.L.E fan, there's not many of them.

I do love their music, yeah- that is a wicked set of songs there. U.N.K.L.E is so underrated- it is lovely to meet another fan, as you say!
