2009.034 . Safety Goggles?

Two happy chemists from my lab today. One of them forgot her safety goggles, but she was smart enough to put on the best eye protection she could find. Fortunately, the students weren't working with anything too dangerous anyway, or I might have been more concerned. The good safety goggles have shields on the side and top, and are not shaded. I have to admit, I love the look of the yellow ones. If only there were some way to combine safety with style in the chemistry lab.


This is the only photo I took today. I used my cell phone, and the girl on the left thought I had already snapped the photo so she reached out to take a paper that someone was handing to her while I was looking into the phone and composing the shot. The trouble with small-screen viewfinders is that I really can't see much detail in them without my glasses, so my concern was more that the burette would not be blocking her face rather than that they'd both be looking at the camera. They're both smiling, and it's an unexpected "action shot" so I'm pleased with the result. Besides, it's all I've got for the 34th day of 2009.
