    A friend sent me the link. Looks like a photography project where they have taken pictures of various objects being shot by various weapons. Pretty neat looking anyway.

    Too cool!!!

    I've been looking for pics like that for a long time! There used to be posters like that but I haven't seen them in years.

    Need to contact him and see about a print.

    I like how in the left-hand lemon pic, you can see (at far left) the base of the bullet. Frozen lemon must have made it tumble.

    Those are really cool pics; I especially like the way the frozen lemon seemed to be "shattering."

    I liked the shot of the bullet cutting rubber. My guess is rubber bands. What was really neat was to think they had all been the same length before the bullet cut them, and the ones cut first have contracted the most along the bullet's path causing the funnel or horizontal v shape. Very nice indeed. I also liked the Queen of Diamonds with the bullet in flight still in the pic.

    Thanks for the link,

    Seeing the spin on the Supersonic bullet schlieren is pretty coo.

    Interesting that no matter what material is shot (soup/lemon etc) the spray is white.

    I have several of Davidhazy's photos that I have "liberated" to my hard drive.

    All of this stop action photography is awsome. I have never seen this much in one place though. Thanks for the link.

    that is because the spray is composed of very small droplets of various sizes. the variety of sizes allows the drops to scatter the full spectrum of light.

    The queen of diamonds doesn't l look too happy about it all...

    The skin of the banana breaking apart is pretty neat too...

    Incredible pictures.

    I had no idea the wad peeled away that soon. I always thought it magically happened somewhat further downrange, but it makes sense, I suppose.

    Whatever's on the receiving end of that load of shot is in for a world of hurt. I'd like to see pictures of stuff getting splattered by the shotgun...it'd be interesting to see multiple cuts in a card, tomato, etc.
