It's something we all need... and as photographers something we capture everyday.
With these old style bulbs being phased out around the world for the new energy saving versions I thought Id grab a few from the local pound shop and play around with them while I still can.
For this one I cracked a small hole in the bottom of the bulb leaving the rest intact, to see what I could get from burning the element with the glass still around it.
Its definitely different to doing it with no glass (you lose the big mushroom) but its still rather pretty
Anyway I hope you all enjoy the image.. and lets all say goodbye to the old style bulb, I'm sure we will all miss it once its gone.
