2012, Day 24 - Skull and crossbones

This may be my last macro shot for a couple of weeks.  If you'll recall my macro lens was acting up right before Christmas so I sent it to Canon to have them check it out.  They returned it promptly but now it is, for lack of a better word, sticking.  When it tries to focus the mechanism struggles and there is a faint buzz like a motor is operating but it isn't getting the response it requires.  So after a call to Canon they are sending me a shipping label and will be repairing it at their expense thanks to a six month warranty on any piece of equipment serviced.

Anywho, my friend is selling his custom sterling silver wallet chain and wallet.  The chain is almost two feet of heavy solid sterling skulls and crosses made by a silversmith in southern California.  I volunteered to help him out by taking some pictures and this one shows the back of a skull with the words Silver King engraved on the back.  I wouldn't say this is an everyday kind of object but it certainly makes a neat subject.
