I want a lot more stuff from your microscope, Leigh!

It's fascinating how many ways and things a thing can be. Heart, antibody, the northern lights, an alien landscape, a pixel pattern, a topic of conversation. Science can be about asking "what is a thing", and never being satisfied with any one beautiful answer. Thanks for this unique and interesting perspective.

This scientific photo is special because it has the shape of a heart. Once, while living in Denver, I got a collection of Scientific mags and I was fascinated with images of microscopes. There were photos of all different kinds of cells and bacterias and I cut the pages to fold my notebooks, some old books, boxes and I even made pen holders with cans covered with these photos. They looked like abstract paintings.

I spend a lot of time in lab doing microscopy- and I was taking pictures of amebas I had fluorescently labeled with some antibodies and I found this one that looked like a heart. I just thought it was a nice example of how science can be art and how creativity is vital in scientific research.
