The saying goes that looking at something from a different perspective can make it seem totally new and unfamiliar. It turns out, the same is true when you take that expression literally!

Take a look at these incredible photographs that were all taken in extreme close-up. Each picture is of a common item you might have around the house, but it can be difficult to make out first. See if you can tell what these everyday objects by only seeing their tiniest details very close up!

Let’s start with an easy one. Can you tell what this everyday object is?

It’s an apple stem! It seems like stems are quite a bit hairier than most people would guess…

This one’s a little tougher, but it will make complete sense once you know the answer. Got it yet?

It’s actually the spark wheel of a lighter! This one seems pretty worn-in but maybe they all look that way up close!

The third time’s a charm. Can you make out what’s being photographed in this extremely zoomed-in photo?

This one is a picture of a tomato stem! There’s a lot going on here, so it’s hard to tell what are stray fibers and what are beads of moisture…
