Mystery solved!

A few days ago I offered up this picture and asked you what you thought it was:

Merilee and Clair were the closest with their comments alluding to something microscopic. It's actually a picture of the end of a grey hair from my head as seen through a cheap, hand-held microscope I'd gotten for Christmas a few years ago. I recently rediscovered it and thought I'd try taking a picture through the eyepiece. I'm a huge nerd for this kind of stuff. Someday, when I can afford it, I'll buy a real microscope and spend hours playing with it. :)



  1. I grey hair! Dang Barry you're getting old. Or shall I say Grandpa B? :)

    I remember using microscopes in school, i always thought they were cool

  2. I never would have guessed a gray hair.. very creative.

  3. So why's it red? That's the blood from when you plucked it from your head.
