Photographer's Note

Ive got you under my skin
Ive got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart, that youre really a part of me
Ive got you under my skin

Ive tried so not to give in
Ive said to myself this affair never will go so well
But why should I try to resist, when baby will I know than well
That Ive got you under my skin...

(Frank Sinatra)



...i keep on sending pics from the corridors of the medical faculty, but this time i wanted to send a pic of a real medical stuff, i hope it is not too disturbing...

...this is taken during a thymectomy operation of a myasthenia gravis patient and what you see through the chest is the heart...

...i know some may find this shot not suitable for TrekEarth but if "The underlying theme of TrekEarth is learning more about the world through photography" then welcome to the real world...
