Photographer David Johnson shot these flower-esque photos of fireworks!
If you’re wondering how, The Atlantic went ahead and asked him! Here’s what he said:
The way I captured the photos was actually pretty simple… it just required good timing. Having the camera in Bulb mode (exposure is as long as I hold down the shutter) was key.
I put the camera out of focus and would start an exposure when I could see the fireworks going up. Once they exploded, I quickly refocused the camera.
This created an effect of blobbed/out of focus light that slowly converges into fine points. Makes a regular explosion look like a deep sea creature!

Creepy and beautiful in the same moment.
Animals in the Womb
They may grow to be very different beasts, but these breathtaking images reveal how surprisingly similar the beginning of life can be for the animal kingdom. Captured using revolutionary four-dimensional imaging technology and anatomically accurate models, scientists have managed to shed light on the world of mammals inside the womb. As diverse a bunch as they are - elephant, dog, dolphin and penguin are all shown united by their similar stages of development.
Scientists captured the images for a National Geographic Documentary called ‘Animals in the Womb’. The images were also used on a Channel 4 documentary ‘Animals in the Womb’ which aired in 2009. They were created by using a combination of ultrasound scans, computer graphics and small cameras -as well as some carefully created models- to document the animals’ development from conception to birth, and give an unparalleled glimpse into a world that few of us would ever expect to see.
For his latest project, Tim Tadder found a bunch of bald men and threw water balloons at their heads, literally!
