Microscopic

For all you macro geeks out there, try 1000x mag! I've done this before, but his time I took my time with each shot. I'm using a Pentax Spotmatic F camera body and an Olympus GB microscope which was approved for lab use in 1959. These were all shot on Fugi 800ISO film.

Now laugh if you will, but I apologize for the slight bit of noise in some of these...the first on in particular. It's not too noticeable, but it's not on the prints. I got the Superstore to scan these and their scanner stinks.

Anyway...enjoy.
