A few weeks ago I was messing about with the kids and a camera while standing in line to see a huge stinky flower. As is my way I wondered what an extreme wide angle close up of H's eye would look like. While I was taking this shot - and people around me were moving away and phoning social services - I noticed that I could see my reflection in H's eye.
At this point I got the idea of seeing if I could get the front element of my lens to line up with the pupil of H's eye. This shot is the best I managed, with a bit of cropping.
In my past life as a science teacher I used to do the classic comparison of a camera and the eye sort of thing - I think I would have used this image as an introduction. I get the feeling that part of me will always be a science teacher!
