Part of my love of my old laboratory days were fluorescent microscopy, which I did thousands of times, and electron microscopy, which I got to see a lot of photos of though I never did the work. I even liked regular old fashioned microscopy..

There's an old thread I started, and I remember that farmer posted on, involving art and microscopy and similar modes. I'll see if I can find a link because of the similar interests.

That first photo reminds me of something arty too..

@djjd62,
The first image reminds me very much of something, too -- I think it may be from a book of early (e.g., pre-Stalin) Soviet art that's around the house somewhere....

Found it - here's a related link -
http://able2know.org/topic/128163-1

The photos are gone but the contributers and probably the links are still there and the science art connection is still worth talking about.
