[Histonet] Color in Sections with Adipose Tissue?

I've observed images on a computer screen with a person next to me 
insisting that the adipose tissue in H&E stained tissue has a color 
versus areas with no tissue (open areas).  Am I missing something, or do 
others see either a slight discoloration in adipose tissue, or a 
slightly different color, versus areas without tissue?  I suspect it 
depends on section thickness, but given a 5 - 8 micron section it seems 
that whatever tissue might have been present would be scraped away with 
the blade.
