“Pixels can only be square” he said.

Hmmmm. I thought that too but have some that aren’t. It started with a zoom. In analogue days that would equate to a magnifying glass. I wanted to look more closely at an aspect of a strange appearance in an image. So I zoomed in. And then some more. Until I could only see the individual pixels.

And that’s all there is to it. I looked a bit more closely than usual.

Pixels close up

Apparently pixels are not rectangle either. I found an interesting article if you want to explore the detail of a ‘point’ (the pixel). http://alvyray.com/Memos/CG/Microsoft/6_pixel.pdf

And after all that, I can only describe all the above pixels as irregular and exciting. Zoom in yourself and take a look – it’s liberating.
