I’ve been very eagerly awaiting the day that I could write this post. I’m so happy that time has come!
Those of you who have been following me for a while know that it is not unusual for me to take photos of flowers, plants, trees, etc. and display them in a way where readers can get a closer and closer view. For example:
Some back story before I go on.
When I was a child I had a microscope. I loved exploring the microscopic world. A few months ago, I started thinking about that experience. It occurred to me that it would be fun to buy another microscope at some point. Perhaps it would be a retirement activity.
Then two weeks ago, I realized that I could add microscopic images to the nature closeup photos I post. I talked to a friend who is a scientist and he suggested I buy a dissecting microscope. That seemed a perfect way to meet my current goal.
The microscope arrived last week and today I received the adapter I ordered. The adapter connects my iPhone to the microscope’s eyeglass.
The photos I am about to share are of the maroon pod that you can see in the three pictures at the beginning of this post.
As I looked at the first microscopic photos I took , they seemed so flat compared to the beautiful 3 D sights I was seeing when I looked directly into the microscope. When I transferred the photos to the laptop, though, the depth was much more visible.
While this adapter will probably never allow me to get a picture that matches the level of glory I see in the microscope, they definitely relay the amazing beauty and a lot of the intricacy. I think they are beautiful.
The photos above are of the outside of the pod. Those below show what it looks like on the inside.
Welcome to my new adventure!
