Looking for thoughts on some random, untraditional macro images. (Warning: "gross").

    I got a digital camera a while ago. I've never been into photography of any kind and I don't consider myself an artistic person. I just dabbled with the camera.

    As time passed, I noticed a prevalent theme in my pictures. It seems that what I end up focusing the most on, and the only pictures I take that look "good" from any sort of composition perspective, are macro photos of gross things. I guess they just interest me. So I'll post a few of the pictures I've taken to see what people think of them. I'm not looking for any specific advice or anything, just curious for some opinions.

    My camera is a Nikon 4100.

    Going in roughly oldest to newest - I leave these images as links because, while I don't think there is anything too unnerving here, some people may disagree and I advise you click at your discretion. Let me know what you think.

    This is a long story, but made short it's a picture of peeling the scab off the brand I put on my chest.

    This is a blackhead I squeezed out of my back. It looks like an ant.
