Photography: a stained mug and iris macros.

Self similarity at all scales

A pattern left behind by the receding surface of my drink.

"Is that a fractal in there?"
the lamp asked the mug.
"Don't look, you pervert!" the mug shrinked back, feeling violated.

This is my right eye. Say hello!


Amazing stuff. I'd do this more often if not for the fact that I have to shine a bright light at my eye while taking the photograph. I've got a headache now.

My eye picture usually gives people the creeps too, especially the white-eye shot.

Yee Hou:
I'm refusing to call you Dr Tan, you gyaecologist-wanname (yes, he helped someone reduce PMS discomfort, my genius brother).

It's not creepy.

Its actually not that bad, the washed out parts were preent because i wanted to properly expose the eye's details.

Naive Idealist:
Oh, yes. Did not think of that earlier while shooting. Desaturating the photo now doesn't work well.

It's not evil; in fact, its quite friendly.
