High Speed Photography of Light Bulbs As They Explode, Filled with AWESOMESAUCE by Jon Smith

I am really digging Jon Smith’s photography.  Jon is a high speed photography zen f*cking master.  Apparently he also does some Light Art.  Jon is Wide Eyed Illuminations on Flickr — and since I’m apparently in an all-about-light-bulbs mood today, watch this and then check out what’s beneath it:

THAT, good people of the world, is some amazing shit!  Jon fills up the glass envelope of incandescent light bulbs, and then shoots that sucker with a pellet gun.  Which, as you see below, makes awesomesauce.

These are my personal favorite pics from Jon’s full set on Flickr of the light bulbs.  I’m sure you’ll find your favorites too, but check out the whole set here.
