This is beyond incredible, I would say it's Extravagant! The whole vision of this ballpoint pen is something that we humans can't even see in the naked eye! To my perspective looking at it, the ink color is some sort of purple (I wonder what's the gray part?), and I never thought that there would be like actually "dust" on the ballpen! Amazing! Now I've seen some of your photos before and they have pictures of insects close up, now if you didn't know this I'm afraid of wasps and hornets myself. But enough about that, this is by far the most incredible close up of an everyday object I've ever seen! Keep up the good work and I hope this critique helped! ;3

Wha....? That's what it looks like up close? Oh well, that explains why it's called "ballpoint" oO This was the kind of revelation that makes me feel stupid and amazed at the same time :lol:

Yeah, but I've never given it too much though and never looked a tip up SO close as to actually see it. Besides, the name is totally different in my native language and I was never 100% sure a "ballpoint pen" refers to the exact same kind of pen I've used. I guess I was just lazy to look it up.

In swedish, it is called exactly the same, but it took me quite a while before I understood why :)

In Bulgarian they are called roughly "chemical pens". No ball hint.

Og hehe, så er du fra den svenske delen av Antarktica? (Og ja, jeg vet dette er ikke svensk XP ) Skål! :ahoy:

amazing;  something so familiar to me, yet you make me realize I have never really seen it properly.  Now it's a seed pod, an insect eye, a space capsule, an alien worm...  but still a ballpoint as well.  Fantastic, poetic, revelatory work  :clap:

That's kind what I like too. To be able to see a familiar object up close to discover new details.
