Exploding light bulbs.

Chemist and photographer Jon Smith fills light bulbs with different things (chalk dust, candies, sprinkles), shoots the bulbs with a pellet gun, and captures the image using high-speed photography. “People see and use light bulbs every day. They’re something we don’t pay attention to,” Smith told Flickr. “By shooting them, having them explode and filling them with different materials creates an interesting juxtaposition that I’m really drawn to.”
