Blue Celestite

This is one of the most healing of crystals. I have mine sitting in sea salt, drawing negativity from the atmosphere.

 

My Olympus OM-1 w/ 50mm Zuiko lens + a 2x magnifying glass = Magnifying glass macro.

 

I hand held the magnifying glass in front of the camera lens and used it to increase the range of the 50mm lens. The magnifying glass I bought was a plastic one, so I don't know if some of the distortions were because of that (like in a Holga which has a plastic lens).

 

I used Kodak Porta 400 vc film.
