I took some a few years back - just dug them out , here's one of a fuse blowing .



And some sparks ....







Maybe if I could get a blown light bulb - get some sparks jumping the gap ... and then smash the light bulb ..... hmmmmm .

Hi Desmond that video explained a lot. I nearly pissed myself from laughing at the comment about the neighbour's chickens and the way you almost looked worried outside. Love the waterballoon pictures.

Thanks finally someone mentioned the comment about the chickens .
The days are definitely getting shorter now , yesterday I bought some different shape balloons and I think this time there will be some coloured flash gels involved

This is so coooooooool

You could literally fill the frame with this kind of shot and make awesome abstracts too. Unique and entertaining as always, Desmond.

Now that could look quite spectacular --- unless the pellet is too small to make a decent mess of things , I suppose there's only one way to find out .
The farmer has some chickens laying eggs not far from my place
