Amazing Photos of Food as Seen Through a Microscope


Yes, this is a Pop Tart

At what point can we look at virtually all things as “beautiful” or “art.”  Well I certainly think that given the right angles, lighting, nearly any kind of changes that benefit the subject matter, all things can be considered amazing.   One tool that helps this process better than nearly all?  A microscope.

Yup.  You’d be amazed at what certain objects look like when magnified many times over.  These micrographs of ordinary food products combine science and fine art.

Check out the pics after the jump….
