Some things are truly fascinating. I mean, many things are, but some to an extreme extent. These pictures are the result of me cutting open glow sticks and putting the fluid in a jar. The Internet is full of people doing that, but ever since I saw this (although it uses a different substance), I wanted to try it for myself as well. So I did.
Imagine me happy as a kid and genuinely exited about what I just created. Then running downstairs (I was at my parents’), disturbing my family in their TV-show or movie-plot or who cares what by switching off all the lights in the living room and shaking my jar excitedly up and down in the dark exclaiming “look look”. Then switching the lights back on, running upstairs again, and experiment some more. I think my loved ones are used to my ‘projects’ by now. You should know that I generally am a calm and quiet kid.
It became really awesome at the point where I got my hands on some mirrors. I created an infinite number of glowing jars in my room and far far beyond; a long row of jars all the way through the walls. Talking about combining fascinating phenomena. Seriously guys, I can’t get over how many fascinating things we have in this world. Just a simple exothermic chemical reaction makes me run wild.
Photography in the dark is something completely new to me. I normally use bright popping colors, but I really love how these turned out.
But judge for yourself, doesn’t it look magical? :)
