Diffuse - The Dictionary of Image.
I am really pleased with how this has turned out. I took this image in a quiet moment at work. I was mixing up some agar mixed with indicator fluid, for an experiment with various molarities of acids. I noticed that the indicator fluid turned the nutrient agar mixture this bright green (acid then turns it pink) and thought it looked really interesting. Then I shook the McCartney bottles up to mix them, before autoclaving them, and thought this then looked even better.
The idea to add the definition of diffuse came to me in a sudden flash of inspiration, when I saw one of my contacts Dictionary of Image submissions, defining 'separation'. I just thought that this worked alongside it nicely.
The text was added with the Gimp, and the font is Andalus.
The definition is from the on-line dictionary service, dictionary.com.
