Forty Portraits in Forty Years - The Brown Sisters

In 1975, Nicholas took a photo of his wife Bebe and her three sisters during a family gathering.
When he repeated it the following year, he realised that there was something special happening, and asked the sisters if they’d pose each year. Ever since, he has photographed his wife and her sisters annually, always in the same order, the most recent picture being taken in 2014.

What Happens When Lightning Strikes Water?


This looks so cool . . . but guess what? It's fake!!
Do you see that yellowish cloud of sodium vapours? 
Similiar cloud can be visible after 
detonation of some kinds of explosives.
This is not lightning, but cool!


But here is a video with lots of lightning strikes!!
