Day 6 - Closer Look

Sometimes looking at everyday things in different ways gives us a new perspective. I was playing with my macro lens after school. I tried a number of subjects and then took my glasses off to take a bit of a break. While pausing I had the idea to try using my glasses as a subject. When I showed Peg the picture she thought it looked a bit like a vase. I'm not sure I can see that but I guess we all see things in our own way. What about you? What do you see?

I see an incredibly interesting image - not sure that I would have ever identified the content without your description! Love macro shots - especially when turning the ordinary extraordinary! Nice one, indeed.

I see a face...sort of...haha.
In all seriousness - this is really well done. I couldn't figure out what it was at first. I used to love playing those 'what is it?' games as a kid. This reminds me of those games.

Didn't know what it was until you revealed - the macro lets us see things quite differently.

I see bug eyes!

I love these kinds of images that make me really think. I try to figure it out before I read what it is.

I had no clue what this was at first. I almost wondered if the nose pads were some kind of transparent speakers or something!
