A peeled orange and a red bell pepper. That’s what I thought a pencil and a Coke bottle cap were when I saw them in macro. That’s because when you stare at something from up close, even if it’s something you see every day, you lose your sense of familiarity with it. The dash of colour misleads your brain and the impossible little details trick you into thinking you’re looking at something you’ve never seen before because, well, you actually never have seen it like this before.

It’s pretty fun to try and guess what’s what, though.
