ghastly milliseconds

Macabre & marvelous.

The NYTimes has compiled a slideshow capturing the atomic bomb on film.

Peter Kuran compiled How To Photograph an Atomic Bomb.

The California Literary Review offers several additional photos.

“100 Suns” by Michael Light is profoundly stunning too.

Indeed, how do you photograph an atomic bomb? Under this atomic fireball —milliseconds after detonation— are tanks and trucks and jeeps planted for instant destruction.

Please notice the crescent-shaped shock wave already returning from the ground in a split of second. Pondering Potent Power … wot.
