Every Day Things Zoomed in at a Microscopic Level Look Trippy
All of things in these images exist in the world around you. You may even encounter most of these daily. But when you take something seemingly normal, like an eye lash, it turns alien and strange when you zoom in to a microscopic level. A banana. The surface of a vinyl disc. Velcro. Red blood cells. Used dental floss. The filament of a tungsten lightbulb. A toothbrush. Toilet paper. The foot of a housefly. Sutures. A split human hair. The skin of a spider. Snowflakes. Salt and pepper. Salt. Lice. The edge of a stamp. Pollen. Pencil graphite. Orange juice. Needle and thread. Instant coffee. A human sweat gland. A human eyelash. A guitar string. The foot of a gecko. A football jersey. A flea. Dust. Chocolate. Chalk. A blood clot. Just think. Source
