One aspect of scientific photography is about visualizing things that can’t be seen with the unaided eye. This is displayed in this microscopic image of a rock – an object that we pass on a daily basis without a second glance. By using this instrument one can see fragments that one didn’t think were there. Each thin slice of rock has different cracks and fractures, just as a person can have emotional cracks and fractures. Geologists are able to figure out what minerals constitute the rock, just as psychologists can figure out the uniqueness of a human being.
