Welcome to my blog on achromatic phenomena. Loosely stated, achromatic phenomena are those attributes that effect the way an object or surface appears. Examples are gloss, luster, iridescence, luminescence, transparency, holographic, metallic & translucency. The blog is designed to explore how achromatic phenomena impact the world of design, art and nature. Please post your favorite examples and let me know how the make you feel or why you think it's cool. Most importantly have fun!
