Hand X-Ray

    Newer Older

    An X-Ray of my hand, from early summer of 2010, when I thought I might've broken it in a rollerblading accident (I hadn't).

    The EXIF data says this was taken by an iPhone. More accurately, it was *uploaded* by an iPhone from my photo library. The image was originally taken at a medical lab, and I used Photoshop to improve the contrast.

    robert scott bolling, sighclub, and 20 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      So awesome! It looks like an Alan Magee painting.

      That's funny, Kate, when I first saw it I thought, "charcoal drawing."

      Hi - does the iPhone take a photo of your hand and then add in computer generated bones? Cool photo.

    8. Trace Meek 26 months ago | reply

      No, the iPhone does not do that. There may be an app that does, but I'm not aware of it. This was a real X-ray, from the doctor's office.

      P.S., Glad you like the photo.

      Ah cheers - it's just that your photo said taken with an Apple iPhone. I would like to use this for something I am writing and see that this is available for re-use. If I do use the image I'll fully credit you of course.

      Oh, I see. Thanks for the heads-up. I've adjusted the caption accordingly. Yes, feel free to use the image.
