Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details 2

I should have thought of this in the first place! The hospital where I work is pioneering new research into robotic surgery and yesterday a demo robot, complete with computer was on display so that visitors could have a go – but not on patients! When surgeons use robot assistance they sit at a computer guiding the procedure on a 3D screen and it is believed that the technology reduces stress for clinicians as well as promoting faster recovery after complex surgery and reduced blood loss. It was fascinating to watch a visitor try it and I would have loved to as well but my lunch break was nearly over. Of course I only had my mobile so the pics aren’t the best quality.

A best of a machine!
A beast of a machine!
Reaching in
Reaching in
The surgeons finger to give me some scale!

Lost in the details, the tiny coloured rings wouldn't have fit on my little finger!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

This week’s photo challenge is guest hosted by Christopher Martin.

Lost in the Details. This challenge is about getting lost in the details. Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene.

I’m not totally sure I understand what we are being asked to do this week, but hey here goes anyway! These photos were taken at Chichester Cathedral in West Sussex and I find the detail fascinating, if you click on them you should be able to zoom in. Hope you enjoy.
