    Very well done Desmond, I really like your approach to personal well being with the safety glasses.

    these are fantastic Desmond. Just love those patterns on the red as it`s exploding and the light blue/white? one...looks like the inside of the tubing wave. Wonderful. That safety glasses one is real funny too. Not sure about playing with glass.....must be careful...

    The glass was ok - I just had to sweep up the mess !
    But when I shot this stone using repeat flash mode I ended up with blood trickling down my arm .....
