Many have read of it, but few have seen it. I have a sample given to me by Vonnegut himself.

All kidding aside, I made an attempt at this back in 2009 with my first digital camera, a Lumix DMC FZ8, and posted it here as an abstract. Thought I'd make another try with the 800.

Of course, we know it's not the fictional material appearing in Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat's Cradle, but it is indeed ice. I just floated a cup of ice in a few inches of water inside a clear glass decanter. Then I placed it all on a little LED light pedestal containing the colors red, blue, and green. Turn out the lights to darken the room and then fire away with a macro lens.

That is very cool BF. love the flowing lines along with that vibrant colour. This works so well for me. Nicely envisioned and executed.
