Sharp Shooter

Below here are some images of objects being penertrated by an air gun pellet from a rifle held by artist Alan Sailer in his studio. He photographs the moment using high speed cameras and the result is quite spectacular.

This is actually a tomato being shot. I think what's happening on the right hand side actually looks like mold growing...

This one is a grape being shot at.

Quite obviously a strawberry being blown to smithereens.

Now this one is the coolest as far as I am concerned. It is a christmas tree bauble that has been filled with orange jelly. The artist says is was most interesting because the jelly actually held the pieces of the exploding bauble together. I concur.

Wow, that is really cool :) That would be such an awesome photography project. Too bad I don't know anyone with a steady enough hand to shoot the objects, haha.
