    Funky colors and textures, but no idea what it is.

    Nice abstract Bif. Is it leather in some unusual tanning stage?

    :D

    It's a 1:1 of a coffee cup I forgot to bring downstairs. The coffee, milk, and sugar solidified into a nice growth medium like agar, and several microbes found a nice home to start a few colorful cultures.

    I have an awesome Nikon fluorescent microscope to go 1000x but setup and prep is a pain in the butt. Maybe in the future we'll check some out through it.

    It looks like a helicopter view of an African landscape. It's cool though!

    But it looks pretty cool, dont think anyone would have thought "coffee" when looking at that pic. Very nice abstract :)

    I immediately completed the title "word" "mo..." by the missing "...uld". It is obvious.
    Though had I found this in my kitchen, I wouldn't have had the presence of mind to get out the camera and take such neat, detailed, colourful photo of it. Ugh. I guess not. It would have been tossed into the bin within seconds of my finding it... (Such "growths" are mostly to be expected in my son's room, though ... not in my kitchen).

    That's kinda what I thought too. Like a micro landscape. Thus the forum choice. ;)
    And thanks for the nice words!


    Thanks man! Coming from you that's a real treat! :thumbup:


    Hehehe, I can place the blame for this one squarely on my GF's shoulders. :D Or maybe not as she has a pulled hamstring and I'm supposed to be taking care of her. :D Ooops.. Guess it's my bad after all. :p

    And yup! Mould or Mold is the title word! Good eye!

    Thanks for the compliments too!

    Much appreciated all!

    Here's how much it's changed in the past 40 hours or whatever it's been. The color of the blue stuff changed to more of green too. I lit it so that the glass was additionally illuminated partially from the bottom so the yellow/red of the coffee+milk+sugar medium is also affecting the colors. :p I used the same color balancing but I used a diffuser on the flash which changed the shading a bit. I placed a white box around the image area I cropped to for the initial post. I included the old one in the same post too so you can see the differences better.
