Macro fun

Cohabitation or competition?

After a certain withdrawal, I am having my macro fix. Ahhhh!

Fungi growing on bread. You can appreciate the two different species (Penicillium and/or Rhizopus) cohabiting, or should I say, competing for the substrate. :-)

Now, if nobody minds, I'll throw away my subject because I doubt that breathing the smell around it is safe. I allowed it to incubate for approx. 2 weeks after it started to sporulate. It is becoming a biological weapon now!

I am happy... :,-)

I just come back from Jean's place where I got to show him all the new photo toys I acquired over the past months. I had so much fun macrophoto geeking out with him!

He started to have a feeling of what it feels like to reach 5X magnification (oh yeah baby!), I envied him for his angle viewfinder (but man, it costs 200$!!!), he was intimidated at first by my monstruous macro flash, we discussed about television tubes and the difference between Trinitron and other tubes in terms of pixels, we got a chance to talk a bit about Japan (which I dearly want to go to) and about my latest new baby, my Mac mini. :,-) And much more...

I think he's gonna have quite some fun in the next days with my lenses... ;-)
