Building Blocks


You can see the full-sized version of this photo here.

I've been having fun at night getting some macro shooting in. Table salt is interesting up close, and I love the cubic nature when you can see it clearly.

Yes, yes, this is a massively cool pic!

Wow - I didn't even know a camera could do that. Very cool.

Thanks everyone. I have a shot of sugar at that magnification as well from the same shoot, but it's a little less cool because from eating rock candy, we all know that sugar has a clear crystaline form.

I'll post it soon, for comparison.

You should try shooting some Kosher salt, as you'll get some very interesting shots. The process for making Kosher salt creates snowflake-like structures. That would be a cool comparison as well.

I always thought kosher salt was packed like pyramids, not snowflakes. Well we'll all know by this time tomorrow, as I have kosher salt at home. Stay tuned.

I took shots of kosher salt. Depressingly uninteresting. It was just chaotic flakes, not interesting enough to post. Bummer.

I have some large-grain "gourmet" salt which we bought for a salt&pepper grinder we have. I bet that would look pretty interesing at magnification.

What? No snowflakes? I'm so mad I might throw stones at an embassy or something...
