Crayola

crayola, originally uploaded by davidneff.

Tag search ‘fire’. A very nice piece of high-speed photography, showing a .22 bullet ripping through a line of crayons.

I used to be fascinated by these shots when I was a youngster – there was a Professor at MIT called Harold Edgerton who had a series of photos published in Time – including this one of a bullet passing through an apple. I must have spent hours marvelling at his photos – nice to see people are still experimenting with his techniques.
