Flickr user nebarnix has a fascinating hobby of blowing things up and taking pictures of them during the explosion using high speed photography.

In order to take these amazing photos, nebarnix utilizes a special flash unit that uses a "high voltage arc in air as the light source." The flash of this light only lasts for about 500 nanoseconds. High speed indeed!

Nebarnix is nice enough to accept requests of things to blow it up.

Check out the gallery for some of the amazing photographs which include blown up candles, grapefruit, eggs, and ceramic dolls. Stats for High-Speed Photography Trending: Older & Average
