30 day project

Day 3 - Testing a tiny, tiny lens

I promise that this won't all be strange macro shots (it's not my normal style, look around on the site!).  I backed a Kickstarter project for a smartphone based microscope and I thought I would give it a try.  My attempts at taking a picture of an eye were remarkably like the glaucoma test at the eye doctor (puff of air in the eye).  I could never get close enough to be both comfortable and get a sharp shot.  The dogs wanted to eat the phone so I avoided that (the little one really likes the taste of laptop apparently).

This is a Christmas ornament (the tree is coming down this weekend, promise).  It's the best shot I took with the microscope lens before it started falling off my phone (I should probably read the directions).  I replaced the lens into its contact lens case for later experimentation.
