A Question of Scale

#56 Another glass refraction pattern. I can't decide what to make of this. Is it another luminous deep sea creature, or a deep space gas cloud formation or perhaps you can think of other interpretations? To me it's all a question of scale.

 

For new viewers: these are analog images of the refraction patterns of light passing through textured glass objects. The glass used for this one is clear so I have introduced colour by inserting coloured optical filters into the light beam. The image is captured directly on to 35mm film, there is no camera lens ( this is a photogram using film instead of photographic paper). No Photoshop is used only Picasa2 for alignment and cropping. The negative film was lab processed and a print scanned for uploading.
