The Queen of Hearts

Manuel does a themed post each Saturday. This week, the topic is “Card”. I don’t play cards, so I found this assignment pretty hard. After thinking about it, I remembered some high speed photography taken by Eugene Edgerton. He took amazing pictures of “the instant”. By timing strobes in his lab, he was able to stop motion in microscopic increments. One of the pictures he took was of a bullet slicing a playing card in half. I hope that’s close enough šŸ˜‰

    Wow, that is so awesome! That must be some heavy duty equipment to do that!
