Snaps of Blue Velvet · 14 Jul 2005, 12:28 am · Keep it
Square America has snapshots from the 50s through the 70s. Some are ordinary. A few have a touch of the uncanny. Strange to think that the decor of the earlier shots is what I saw all the time when I was growing up. Now I know what it’s like to be campy, quaint, and picturesque. See also the Boat Lullabies.

Droplet, a website devoted to microscopic images of protozoa. Striking photographs of a variety of tiny creatures, arranged by taxa. At the right is Vorticella, a “sessile, peritrich ciliate”, at 25x. Includes links to the Integrated Taxonomic Information System, a database of information on biological taxa with a nice search engine of other biological databases. Via Ramage’s Marginalia.
