Macro Monday Brings The Mystery Macros

So, though the weather was arguably a lot nicer this week than it should’ve been — I mean, it’s the middle of fucking February, usually the most heinous of the winter months, and here it’s 70 degrees out and I’m eating ice cream and wearing short sleeves — I still managed to toodle around inside the house and take some MYSTERIOUS MACRO PHOTOS.

I’ll pop that bounty in below, but real quick:

Hey, tomorrow, it’s Empire’s End.

Then next Tuesday, it’s Miriam Black’s latest, Thunderbird.

Star Wars: Empire’s End: Indiebound | Amazon | B&N

Thunderbird: Indiebound | Amazon | B&N

Also a reminder that I’m doing an event this Saturday in support of both at one of the greatest bookstores in the land, Let’s Play Books, in Emmaus, PA. 4pm on the 25th, details here. (The event is listed as 4pm – 4:45pm, but I have full confidence it’s not going to be 45 minutes only — I’ll be there long as you need me to be.)

AND NOW, MACRO WEIRDNESS. Part of the fun here will be to look at these and to try to figure out what you’re even looking at. It’s a mystery! Get in the van, Scoob! Zoinks!

    How’d I do?

  • Hey, just curious did you or do you take photos for Games Magazine? They have this feature called ©Eyeball Benders, which is like these Macro Photos,and it was always the first thing we did when the magazine crossed our door mat each month.

    My daughter was 4 at the time and could wipe up the floor with me: http://gamesmagazine-online.com/

    Excellent logic games, and I credit doing these with her for her advanced math & science skills in school. Not trying to do an ad for them, honest, they’re my favorite mind bender puzzle magazine though.

    Anyway, Chuck if you don’t shoot photos for them, you surely should, you know, just in case you ever need more exposure.

  • 1) DOG TONGUE
    2) ELDRITCH BEING EYEBALL
    3) GIANT PANGOLIN ARMPIT
    4) EWOK EARLOBE INVERTED
    5) PIÑATA ARMOR
    6) YOUR FOUL TONGUE
    7) THE CAT’S FOULD TONGUE
    8) GENERAL GRIEVOUS’ TAINT
    9) THE AMBER BEAR GOD’S SECRET AMULET.

    How did I do? Bonus points for all caps?
