Brocoli ??

Today I found a weird Vegetable in the super market. I did not know how to cook it or what is it..
it looks like a Brocoli But with some "Fractals" on it.
Its pattern repeats and repeats and repeats... really nice..
Can some one tell me what it is? and how to cook it?

Quartz on Fire

The picture of today is still a Macro one, but this time I found a Quartz rock lying somewhere in my house. and then I was wondering what can I do with it. Since all the pictures with the normal light that I have in my living room were not really good, i decided to try something different. I turn off the lights and light up a candle.
From all the positions I try, the one with the best results was with the candle on its back so that it makes it look illuminated from the inside.

Today I was making some tests on the different apertures, focus length and depth of field. Because the lens is detached from the body of the cammera it shows 00mm however I write down the numbers I was using. At last I had 20 different pictures of the same thing just changing its magnification rate. I must say it was an interesant experiment, but at the end I found out that the background also was playing a role on the exposition results of the picture. so This "last" picture I did it with a black background and I put more attention on its composition and colours than in getting maximum magnification.

Star Fish

This time, I shoot a Starfish. I was experimenting with different focus lengths and apertures. this is not the closest that I can get however the best one I got taking on account the exposure and somehow composition. Some others are too close that you can not identify what is on it.
in fact... I think it is dificult to see that this is a Star Fish isnt it?

This week the pictures topic will be "Macro Photography".

For this mean I was doing some research on how to do this kind of pictures, and since I am not in possesion of a "macro - lens" I found the trick that by reverting the lens the focal length can be minimized obtaining this effect. I hope I can improve them during the week.

When you need to do a Breakfast you need some ingredients. however at what point in time it becomes Breakfast? Is this a Breakfast allready?
All the week I have been posting "Breakfast" Pictures, and I never put the one I eat more frequently. I must say that I usually take some Egg Cofee Bread and cheese, or any of its possible combinations.
What would you do with theese Ingredients?
