    Interesting to see what was once the cutting edge of photography technology from our modern persective. Only makes me wonder what future folk will think of our gear....

    Thanks! I'm really enjoying reading your comments on all of the posts, Chicago John!

    This one takes a little more thought, which is good.

    From today I tried a rusty peeling paint shot but it's really not pretty:



    This one from the archives is an "oil and water with fabric underneath" shot, at least the colours are pleasing:



    I'm going to have to try a little harder I think...

    Marie it might not be "pretty" but the paint shot is fascinating, Chicago John condiments work for me and was wondering when the first salt shot was coming

    I agree with yorkshireman, watergirl; the corroded paint shot is compelling. Partially what it is, I think, is that when the mind cannot immediately recognize an image it is drawn into trying to do that. Even though you told us it was corroded paint, it took me a little while to actually see that; to see where the flakes had peeled up and buckled. Before that happened, it was this amazing and colorful unknown pattern.

    I'm sure a process like this is involved in virtually every image we see, it's just norally almost instaneous, and here there was that interesting lag between perception and cognition.

    Just in general, I'm really enjoying all of the images in this thread; so many creative ideas in macro once we are forced to think outside the typical box. Excellent idea yorkshireman !

    (nice corks, Dane. Hope they were not accumulated in a single weekend :P

    Thanks, John. My entire collection would require a wide angle, rather than macro.

    Yikes... this is my third attempt at this one... they say the third time is the charm
    So on the way home from work today (guess I had this thread in the back of my head), looking forward to a glass of wine when I got home (Dane, I happened to look down at my shirt. And I thought, "why not?"

    Fabric?
