    Clark Kent & I got together again today for more experiments. This is a capture of a light bulb filled with a combination of liquid soaps. The bulb was placed on a styrofoam base. A small firecracker was inserted in the base of the bulb and ignited. The explosion sent glass & soap flying everywhere in all directions (as you can see & it also hit us, but we were wearing protective gear). Glass from base of bulb flew upwards and you can see the top of the bulb begin to crack & break as it explodes. C/C welcome! Thanks for looking!

    The poor bulb. The last time I saw cruel and unusual punishment like this it was when Sadam strapped a bomb to a prisoners chest and executed him. I said it then and I'll say it now "nice creative work!"

    Thanks for the comments.

    We put plastic bags over our cameras (& equipment). I have a clear protective lens I attach (screw on) over my camera lens.

    As many on tpf know (& especially those who know us) Clark Kent (Brandon) & I do a lot of things together. Once in a while we'll take a road trip, we go to the Superman celebration every year, and experiment with photography (such as this). It's a lot of fun working with a partner. And with experimental photos like this, I couldn't do it without him. We both come up with ideas and we need 2 to do the things we do. It's FUN!!

    WOW. Ballsy photo. I like it. I tend to be drawn to photos that took a risk, whatever it may be. I trust you shot with a piece of Plexiglas covering your lens....?
