I had a bouquet of dried roses at home and ripped a small piece from its petal to scan it.

At first, it resembled of a terrain of some planet. We could see where the cracks were and see what’s inside on the edges.

It was a pleasant surprise to discover that cell of dried rose petal actually look like one. The shot above is where the petal’s surface meets the crack, where the interior is revealed. It looks like a pile of leaves on the left, while small cells are tangled tightly together on the other half.

How mesmerizing it is to see that appearance of a cell actually resembles its entity! These shots portray so much about roses’ personality: delicate, slender and exquisite.

This shot also reminded me of dried fruits.
