Dental floss with a lovely bit of plaque..


Salt & Pepper.. looks kinda like marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles..


Used cotton bud/Q tip or whatever you Americans call it



This one is really cool, needle and thread!


I love playing guitar but I've never seen a guitar string up close like this before!


Now for my favorite.. always wanted to know how Velcro works!!

Remember of course that these are originally BLACK AND WHITE images that some artist has fakingly hand coloured.

The original images are obtained by throwing electrons at the object (in a raster scan) and measuring the amplitude of the electrons coming off and reaching a detector. In many ways, its not actually a real "picture" of the object, more instead a data construst of the electrical properties of it, in a scan.

Here's one I did myself some years back, of a magnesium oxide coating.
Note how boringly black and white it is.


Now of course at this point I could go in and hand colour it to make it pretty, but that makes it less real.

It's like a completely different world.
Maybe in an even smaller view, the string would look like a tree rather than sticks...

The one labeled "Computer Chip Parts" is actually a hard drive read/write head.
