For years, ever since I did my first pin hole camera image, I've wondered about using something as a make shift lens. Today Erik suggested using a drop of water. We couldn't figure out the logistics on that but we did get Roland's help at drilling into a can and inserting a clear marble in for use as a "lens". The results (above) likely show more signs of the flaws on the surface and bubbles in the interior of the marble than it does of the subject material (similar set up as the image from 6 days ago). This is a negative. If you stare at it long enough you can see your future (passing you by... what are you doing staring at that -- go do something for goodness sake!!!).
