    Another Macro photo thread

    I'll start by going a touch ridiculous.

    Ew. When you get that close, white paint looks like mould. Did not expect that

    There may be a fungus amungus. Seriously that is a great macro. Almost as if taken with an electron microscope.

    I laughed out loud at that!

    Thanks for the kudos guys, I took that shot with an Omano stereoscope (stereomicroscope) of the type that a watchmaker or jeweler would use, with an inexpensive 1.3mp ocular camera mounted in place of an eyepiece. Magnification was around 40x or so.

    A lot of things that look smooth to the eye are extremely textured at high magnification! As a general rule, if the finish is matte to the eye, it will look similar to the above when magnified. Even "glossy" or mirror finishes have much more significant textures at high mag, it's really fascinating.

    The watch is an MB Microtec (Traser) P6506... the tritium vials are very interesting when seen in 3D.
