Shot for Macro Mondays theme of deception.

We as photographers are very good at the art of deception for most believe "seeing is believing" - or is it? If I told you that you are looking at drops of egg yolk on a cashmere sweater chances are you would believe it, or perhaps these are snail eggs? or an alien life form? or mold... so? which is it?

Er, alien lifeform? Something found at the back of your fridge? Certainly looks mouldy and/or frozen... Anyway, it's fascinating whatever it is :))
John_Freeman 2011-01-30 13:38:29
I would have to say a rotting peach, or rotting fruit of some sort? Awesome photographs!

that is something not recommended to eat i think/// but looks really great
koshymir 2011-01-30 13:44:59
[] YES! Good guess. Mold it is. Found it growing on some unused coconut milk so left it to "mature" for a few more days and - discovered its beauty before sending it on its way down the sink.
marianna armata 2011-01-30 13:46:28 are absolutely amazing dear! the way you see the beauty and you capture it is so your idea.... found it funny reading you let it "mature"

Way cool, these are fascinating macros.
Tuppence 2009 2011-01-31 03:51:27
You CLAIM that it's mold.. but obviously you've been in contact with aliens. I'm not sure you can be trusted.

Awesome shot, despite the lie!

Aren't bellows fun??? Good job! Great colors, light, detail. Oh.. and HSS!

Doug Zeiser 2011-01-31 16:28:55
Without reading the comments, I thought cosmic, planetary, star trek - though we know that not to be true Jim - and my mind was off at it's fanciful tangent again. As I am now late here, the cat is out of the bag, and further conjecture would be rather lame I feel.
Really excellent series of macro mould studies, parading in disguise as brave new worlds.
pete ware 2011-01-31 16:35:20
This is an excellent macro shot. I believe it is mold, but might be wrong. Nice uptake on this week's theme.

Awesome work with those extension tubes! I know it's not easy. Beautifully done and doesn't look like rotting anything.

I'll go with mold. What ever it is it's very cool.
hilarious beginner 2011-01-31 17:41:46
These are wonderful images! And you are very brave to go so near the mold to take these pictures :) HMM!
heisajo 2011-01-31 18:02:48
Awesome! My first thought was it is some (edible) food like pie or something...

torsten hansen (berlin) 2011-02-01 07:22:29
I really hope it's not egg on a cashmere sweater...that would be a bit of a shame!
Sarah, Outer Hebrides 2011-02-01 10:19:02
Great image, well done! - should we have a "fridge inspired" macro monday at some stage titled "beautiful but er.. no thanks"? Better open the cream now :D
adwuk 2011-02-01 11:02:26
That's some good looking mold!

Anna Omiotek-Tott 2011-02-28 22:32:40
[] Ania, jesteś kochana. Napewno ci się spodoba G1. Musisz kupić do niej dobrą soczewkę macro. Ja mam starą, fokusuję ręcznie, ale szkło jest doskonałe: Asahi Pentax 50 mm f4 macro. Good luck!
marianna armata 2011-02-28 22:48:25
