Franck–Hertz Experiment

Franck–Hertz experiment

Franck-Hertz Experiment:

The now-famous Franck–Hertz experiment elegantly supported Niels Bohr’s model of the atom, with electrons orbiting the nucleus with specific, discrete energies. Franck and Hertz were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1925 for this work.

Our college science complex has some amazing stuff, and I always look for esoteric items to photograph.

This was a good one for my 7,777 photo posted to Flickr.

We’ll call this traffic report the stay-off-social-media-and-spend-time-with-your-family dip™.

For a long while, black and white photography was all there was. Then came color, and the color film pioneers, and – like the television – most people went that way.

Good artists steal, etc. But really, it just gives me a reason to experiment with a new process. I’ve toyed around with black and white before, but setting out to grab specific B&W images is something new.

When I finally finish with my first roll of black and white film – that’s when things get interesting.

This stuff from ††† (Crosses) is fantastic. As if the last few Deftones album weren’t amazing, Chino gets his techno groove on.

Just pre-ordered the EP collection.

I wasn’t going to play you tonight,
But I can’t help the feeling’s alive.
As long as you play my game,
I’ll let you win.

Every time you communicate with somebody, you’re handing them a pebble. That pebble seems impossibly small to you because you’re the most important person in the world, but you have no idea how many other pebbles that person was given today.
