Just for fun


Originally uploaded by Cincinnati State Archives

In an effort to identify the people, places, events and, well, things in our terrific photographic collection, I will be periodically posting a flickr photo here for you to enjoy, ponder, or tag.

I thought this photo would be a good way to get started. The handsome folks in this photo need names, wouldn’t you say? Especially the one singled out by the arrow. He really stands out in the crowd.

Any science-y folks out there this morning who can identify what is happening in this microscope image?

Happy Tuesday!

    That’s a slide of human blood cells. The pale gray objects in the background are red blood cells (erythrocytes). The larger, more colorful cells are white blood cells (leukocytes). The one by the arrow looks like a type of white blood cell called a lymphocyte. The one above it is probably a neutrophil. By the way, all of the cells seen here have been dyed (stained) to make them easier to visualize and identify. Now you know!
