It's all physics

During a bit of a tidy up I managed to clear out a rather large pile of unwanted CDs - old backup discs and such like.

It came as no surprise that they were claimed by 'Craft Women' who started work on a project with them.  When they were laid out on the table, waiting for the glue to dry,  I noticed the rather good interference patterns being caused by a combination of daylight from the windows and LEDs from above.

I don't need to be asked twice!

Our kids are feasting on Halloween candy (such a silly, frivolous celebration.. Do the participate on your side of the world?) and have been reading me Laffy Taffy jokes throughout the day.
This makes me think of one I just heard: What kind of party does a computer go to? A disco! Your discs look totally disco ready.
(Nice work on the tidy up, I'm doing much of the same here!)

The surface of CD's or DVD's allows great games with light refraction, cool shots.

they do make pretty images even though they are not usable

Beautiful rainbows -- I bet she is going to hang them in a window and you'll have rainbows every day.

Lovely images.

Very nice!
Try putting one of them in a microwave oven for just a few seconds. Yes, there will be a bit of arcing, but the result is pretty cool.
