(Day 172) The 'science experiment'

Do you remember doing science experiments as a kid? You know, maybe you got one of those kits for your birthday when you were young and ended up nearly blowing your friend's thumb off or something fun like that! Or maybe you had to wait till chemistry or biology class before you got to do some cool stuff - all in the name of learning, of course. Maybe you grew some exotic new breed of microbe in the lab - similar to the exotic breeds that sometimes grow in a long forgotten, out of site place in the fridge.

Well I did some experimenting of my own today. I know, it wasn't Phun Friday, but it was time for a diversion of sorts for my 365 photo project. I haven't quite figured out what strange phenomenon I captured with the camera, but I'm sure I'll figure it out by tomorrow. I'll keep you 'posted' ;-)

This looks like it could be onion rings frying in the deep fryer with some photoshopping! I'm curious now as to what it is. Cool photo, one that is going to have me coming back tomorrow (as if I wouldn't anyways) just to find out what it is.

Have a wonderful evening Rick, see you tomorrow.
