2011/202: Showing Scale

My contribution to Scott’s latest assignment, even if it is a day past the deadline.
Thought about some fish scales, but we’re fresh out of fish 😉

Not exactly what I had in mind (I wanted to photograph a seashell on a coin… didn’t work out) but I was able to come up with something.
Thank you Karen for the coin idea. Without that, I would have had to skip the assignment – again!

Can you tell how big this is?

Now you have an idea!

  1. Thats funny Michaela. I was looking for fish scales too – but couldnt find any in due time for the assignment.
    It is a good illustration with the coin. Maybe the stone could have been anything between 1 and 12 inches.

  2. Haha that’s so cool! It looked like a huge crater or something!

  3. Ho, ho…fish scales. That would have been a fun spin on the assignment. Very cool and much smaller than I thought it was without the penny to show it.

  5. I was actually thinking about some sort of reptile scales for the assignment, but never found them! Glad I was able to help you out a bit. Very cool agate!

  6. Yes, I thought that it would be smaller until I saw the penny.

  9. I love these! I have book ends made from very large thunder eggs, and don’t tire of looking at them.

    I didn’t realize how big it is until I saw the penny, really like the second shot.

  11. Ya, it depends on how you put it in place.
