And the pixels on my friend’s Mac. I think it’s interesting to note here that the pixels on the Compaq have a taper on the bottom left, but on the Mac they are on the bottom right!

And that’s it for now. Let me know what you think and if you can think of any other household objects that may be interesting for me to photography and display here. If you would like to use any of the images shown here, just let me know and I’ll probably quite happily email you the full resolution images. I hope you’ve enjoyed my little venture into DIY macro photography, and if you haven’t already, check out my post on how I managed to take all these with my Nokia N95’s camera.
