This Is Not a Rainbow Nuclear Attack

By Sam Biddle on at

What would it look like if the candy kingdom of happy elves launched a thermonuclear assault against us? Probably something like this. Fortunately for this, this isn't a technicolour mushroom cloud. It's photographic trickery.

The image is actually a composite photo of a carnival swing, shot many times, and blurred. The photo is part of a project by Pep Ventosa, and was honored in the Prix de la Photographie -- Paris competition. I'm glad nukes aren't this pleasant to blow up, because then we'd all want nothing but Skittle mutual assured destruction. [Pep Ventosa via My Modern Met]
