The shavings from a sharpened pencil, shown above and below, were almost discarded, but made an interesting pattern.

A little moisture made the shavings slightly transparent, and I photographed them on a light box for transparency using my 200mm macro lens augmented with a 36mm extension tube.

I couldn’t resist inverting the images and extending the spiral in Photoshop. This one really needs to be seen larger.
