Sugar Photos

CrystalsThis week the theme for the Macro Mondays group in Flickr is sugar. My first thought was to recrystallize some sugar -- make rock candy. I'm still working on that. It's harder to recrystallize sugar than I thought. That should have been easy for a chemist!

So I went a different route. Dianne and I made a trip to Fresh Market to get some items to illustrate the sugar theme. The photo at the right is a macro of the colored sugar crystal sprinkles on the frosting of a cupcake. Thanks to Dianne's suggestion, I made a triptych of the cupcake that had the sprinkles. That is the photo below. I also got a nice shot of some gummi worms, a sugar cookie, and other stuff that you can see in the set here.

I've got to get a macro lens. I've always wanted to take close-ups like that.

I love the gummy worm photo! Great job!

Now, of course, we'll all going to have candy for lunch.
