Okay. So possibly the ONLY mitochondrion ornament you'd lay eyes on...

For biology, we had an extra credit assignment we could do. We had to make an ornament for our "Biolotree".

I chose to make a mitochondrion--a cell organelle. I crocheted the two outer membranes and the inner membrane had a pearl matrix outlined in a wire cristae.

(Don't know your mitochondria parts? Visit here for a diagram: http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/mitochondria/images/mitochondriafigure1.jpg)

Anyway to the pics:

It really isn't that wonky-- it's 3Dish, so it's all spun around.


And a very confusing side view:


I do have a question- is anyone willing to give up their taking-pictures-of-small-items-without-blurring tip? I would really appreciate to know how to do that. Taking pictures of this doggon thing was a pain.

You crocheted that? Out of what material?
It's awesome.
Even if I do forget the names of my mitochondria parts.

What's a Biolotree?

Assuming you're using a digital camera, and macro mode, and within the focal range of your camera, then I would recommend holding your hand right in front of the object to give your camera something to focus on, and then you move your hand, and it's usually pretty decent.  It's not terribly professional, but then a professional would probably have a camera with manual focal length.  Soooo... yes.  I've found this works for most close up photography of items that aren't solid enough.

What a cool ornament! I may have to make a set with many of the organelles. Everyone at school calls me a major science geek (and proud of it!!) and this would be just the thing for some science-y holiday decorations!

Thanks for sharing!

If you have a macro function on your camera, that is really great for taking detailed, clear, up-close pictures.  Also, you took that picture in front of a window and your camera's autofocus may have been focusing on something outside..... good luck!

On my camera, the macro setting button has a little picture of a flower.  It makes a big difference to use this setting.
