I bought myself a toy for Christmas and it was only around five dollars. I love microscopic pictures. Here is a visual blogpost of some pictures I took with my new toy. Yes, you are going to think some of these look like little planets, due to the viewer being round. Here are my favorites:
This is my bathrobe with a cat whisker on it.
From a succulent plant I have.
This appears to say “AL” because this is close-up of a Hall’s cough drop wrapper.
This is a prong from a plug.
This is a portion of a dollar bill.
Doll fingers, folks. Gross. It’s a very old doll.
synthetic doll’s hair.
An eraser. The graphite here in specks isn’t so visible with the naked eye.
This is the side of a ring (a gold band.)
This here is my grandson’s toenail. Because.
Dust caught on a stick.
Pattern on a pewter cross necklace.
A very old forgotten barrette from the back of the closet.
Christmas ball ornament.
This needed sharpening: a blunt pencil lead.
A tiny pink pill.
A puzzle piece.
Lines on a ruler.
Scab. I must say it’s a tiny thing with the naked eye, where a cat claw nicked the skin. I grabbed the hand moisturizer after this one!
This is the first micro-picture I took. It’s of a seashell, but I need to finetune the results.
That wrinkly place on the hand where the thumb meets the finger.
A samara (or whirlybird, helicopter seed) that our Maple tree drops, the ones that twirl to the ground.
The red string from a tree ornament.
Synthetic hair from a different doll.
From a succulent plant.
Stuffed elephant ‘fur.’
From the snakeskin I keep on my shelf.
Interestingly enough, I took twice as many photos as I’ve shared here, but I forgot what they were so I didn’t post those. More to follow. I plan to photograph food and dust at some point. That’s all for now!
Happy new year.
