thematic photographic 424 - green!


"Extreme Votivation VIII"
Raleigh, NC - July 2010 (Click to embiggen)

Green it is, then. Interesting fact about green: the human eye can detect more variations of green than any other color. I don't know why that is, possibly because it falls dead-bang in the middle of the visible spectrum, but it's the reason that green is used in night vision equipment rather than black and white.

I didn't need night vision gear for this shot, though, just some cheap fireworks and a hollowed out votive candle. And something to put the whole rig on that wouldn't get wrecked by melted wax.

Reminds me of the flame tests in chemistry lessons = barium burns green.

So does copper, which is probably what this is. We actually ran through several of these; they were leftovers from some holiday or another, and it seemed like a neat idea.
