Slow motion 5 kV Lime explosion
Discharging our small, medium voltage cap bank (charged to to half capacity) into an unsuspecting piece of fruit. This was taken Halloween night, by a friend on his Casio Exilim while we were experimenting with new cables and discharge mechanisms. Electrodes were jammed inside the lime. When the system is discharged, the resulting high energy electrical arc superheats the liquid inside, resulting in a cataclysmic instantaneous buildup of steam pressure. Softer fruits tend to split or burst, but thick-skinned fruits result in a satisfying BOOM, followed by a light mist of fresh citrus juice.

Ghost Trax Ep. 3 Texas World Speedway
My 3rd Ghost Trax Adventure, and probably one of the biggest ones ill ever get to do. The 2 Mile Superspeedway located in College Station, Texas. The speedway hasnt seen a major event since the early 1990s, but the 2.5 mile road course still sees action on a weekly basis. Although not a ghost track yet, it is well on its way, slated for demolition in January 2016 to make way for a new housing devolopment. I was asked by track staff to stay off the racing surfaces for liability reasons, same with the very delapitated grandstand, so i didnt get all the shots i wanted. This track opened in 1968, and hosted Nascar, USAC, Indy, ARCA, TROC, AMA, and Supertruck races just to name a few.
