I feel a kindred spirit in Professor Gary Greenberg, PhD.  His love of art and science have developed into a truly unique hobby photographing some incredibly small and interesting elements of our world.  I bet you are trying to figure out what these are pictures of, stones, shells, crystals?  Well wouldn’t you be interested to know that these are magnified pictures of sand.  I know amazing, Dr Greenberg used his technique of microphotography to magnify common beach sand to 250 times it’s normal size.  What an amazingly complex world we live in.
