I stumbled across this photo gallery on Flickr of photographer Alan Sailer, who appears to favor shots of various objects captured mid-explosion after hit with a bullet. First of all, just the technical skill and timing required to achieve such shots is amazing. But the real fascination for me is how the different materials react – fruit splits open with a weird symmetry, ornaments shatter, and jello looks like a colored wave from one of those old Juicy Fruit commercials.
