A HALLOWEEN VIGNETTE
Manuel del Cerro, Princeton, NJ, USA
“The Triumph of Life over Death.”
The photograph was taken using an Olympus stereo microscope and color-balanced illumination. The magnification was set at 3.5x. The image was recorded on Fuji slide film using a Nikon 6006 SLR camera. It was later digitized and burned on a CD. Microscopic examination of the mold suggested it was a member of the Aspergillus genus, perhaps A. flava.
Trick or treat!
