How awesome are these photographs? Can you guess what they are? Each photograph features a magnified view of common foods. Taken by photographer Caren Alpert (and discovered via Susannah on Jezebel), I thought it was fascinating to see these items up close (there’s lots more to look at on Caren Alpert’s website!).
From top to bottom, the items are: a pineapple leaf, a fortune cookie, a sundried tomato, an orange Lifesaver, a shrimp tail, and a cross section of a Brussels sprout.
It’s interesting to me how the real foods — the sprouts, the shrimp — look like other things you find in nature, while the processed foods…well, don’t. My favorite are the shrimp tail and the pineapple leaf. So much texture, and so pretty to look at!
