Wisdom in Decay

I aged an extracted tooth (not mine, in case you were wondering) for a couple of days and then photographed it the other day on black paper.

Took me around an hour and 100 or so photos before I got the perfect two shots you can see below.

I can hear you say "Ewwww!", but in my personal opinion, I think the final images turned out to be quite artistic!

LOL! So people, I guess I'm the only one who finds these images cool. Which is not surprising considering I'm the one who made it :P

Hi Varun :),
I think the first one was cool, but the second one forced a big..."bleurghhhh" sound or thats what it sounded like when it came out......hehe...

Varun said...

Ashok -- Glad you liked atleast one of the images :)

the first one i find more interesting, only because its as empty as the 2nd one. though both are very good, and great angles and funky depth madness :)

i bet it would be nasty if i would see it in person, but its just a photo, so whats the big deal? :)
