Come closer…closer still

Seems like we spend a lot of time these days debating what’s in the food we eat….and depending on the day, landing on different sides.

It almost kills the taste.

Photographer Caren Alpert takes a different — or should I say much closer — view.  She uses an electron microscope to look at the foods we eat to reveal different landscapes, textures and patterns.

She makes the ordinary exotic.  And maybe it’s just lunchtime…

But she’s making me hungry.
