No, thank you--seeing these kinds of images is very inspiring...I feel that the microcosmos is so terrifying in its beauty, one can get lost gazing into it and realizing the immense, incalculable mystery that is right before our eyes. Science doesn't even yet know what the smallest particles are. How far does it break down? To strings? And what are they, just potential energy, the idea of substance dreaming itself into being? I do a lot of miniature, hyper-detailed art, and the way you capture these images is the way I see after a long session of drawing when my eye muscles are out of control for detail. I just can't stop looking sometimes. It is like I just jump down the rabbit hole sometimes. Oh, and by the way, you should look on my front page (not a shameless plug, I promise) and see the other photo that is next to yours in the faves section. I found them to be wonderfully similar. Let me know what you think; to me the parallels are fascinating....

I'll check out the photos :)

I think what we'll eventually find is that matter is just another form of energy -a little more tangible, but energy non the less...

I wonder how you get something @5x with a 65mm macro and then still get this fantastic sharpness :?

The subject of a future journal entry. What a lot of people blame on diffraction, IMHO, is really motion blur or a softness due to missed focus.
