[Photo] Inside (a Microscope)

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
― Socrates

This picture was taken 6 years ago at a Biology practical session during college. Back then, we were easily contented with a phone camera, although the resolution was only 2 MP (wait.. what?). The picture looked pretty clear on a 1.8″ phone screen, but not-so-clear photos when blown out as seen here.

That day, we were learning about cells; animal and plant cells. Human red blood cells were used to represent the former, while onion epidermal cell to represent the latter. We had to carefully extract our specimens, place it on the slide, and carefully placing the plastic lid to avoid trapping air bubbles. So much fun compared to textbook learning (:

These were the two pictures: (1) Red blood cells and (2) Onion epidermal cells
