Happy Birthday to snowking and Happy Belated Birthday for yesterday to to_conjure!


I use the LJ notification emails to remind me to make these posts and so I apologise if I miss anyone's birthday - I likely did not get that email for whatever LJReason or you may not have your birthday on your LJ userinfo page. Also, if there are multiple LJ names on this post, two or more of them might belong to the same RL person.

Worlds Within Our Worlds: Macro Photos of Everyday Objects | Colossal

Worlds Within Our Worlds: Macro Photos of Everyday Objects | Colossal

Watch this video of beautifully lit macro photos of everyday objects by photographer Pyanek (who also scored the audio) and see how many objects you can guess. I failed miserably. (via Colossal Submissions)

Well, I got quite a lot of these right. Then again I have used a microscope quite a lot in my day (and even an electron microscope at uni). I would, however, prefer that Colossal had called these photos what they are, Micro Photographs, rather than what they are not, Macro Photographs. Just sayin'. The dandelion clock in my userpic is a macro photograph. These are all taken as much higher magnification than mere macro.
