My Life with Science, Art and Food
: "Using scientific laboratory photo equipment, I journey over the surfaces of both organic and processed foods: my own favorites and America’s over-indulgences. The closer the lens got, the more I saw food and consumers of food (all of us!) as part of a larger eco-system than mere sustenance." [more inside]

"Nanobliss is a gallery of visualizations of small-scale structures of carbon nanotubes and silicon, created by John Hart."
I came for the awesome Nanobamas [Flickr set here]
, but was impressed enough with the rest to share the whole. Enjoy---particularly the informative techniques
page. At the very least, have a look at some of the pretty nano pictures.

Light makes a comeback.
“New technologies — more sophisticated imaging techniques, fluorescent molecules that act as beacons of light in the cell, and the computing power to gather and stitch together multiple images and create videos from high-powered microscopes — make it possible to harness one of light’s key advantages: gentleness. Unlike higher-resolution techniques, light microscopes can image biological structures without killing them or chemically fixing them. At Harvard, the resurgence of light microscopy is making it possible to see structures and events that have never before been seen in the context of living cells and organisms.” Also don't miss the video samples
of “in vivo” imagining.
