Surrealistic Virus

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is Simply Surrealistic.

Rather than fire up Photoshop I thought of this image. Created in the darkroom five or six years before anyone had heard of Photoshop. Commissioned for the cover of a book on Influenza research it’s a heavily manipulated photo of a model of an Influenza virus.

52 Week Photo Project

Week 1: GIN

Week 1 of my 52 week photo project for 2018 and something a little different.

GIN, although not the alcoholic beverage. Taken with a digital camera using a high magnification macro lens from my film using days. The lens used was an Olympus OM Zuiko 38mm f/2.8. I used it quite a lot in the ’80s and early ’90s photographing subjects for nature photography photo libraries but it has hardly been used in the past couple of decades.

And for anyone wondering what the above photo is of.

It’s part of the ORIGINAL on the back of a McVitie’s Chocolate Digestive.
