Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

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.


Red blood cells.

Used dental floss.

The filament of a tungsten lightbulb.

A toothbrush.

Toilet paper.

The foot of a housefly.


A split human hair.

The skin of a spider.


Salt and pepper.



The edge of a stamp.


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.




A blood clot.

Just think. Many of these things are even touching you right now. Source
