A high voltage source at my fingertips was a ripe situation to take some impressive pictures. The first picture was shot in a dark room far from any surface. I liked the single-point light source.

The second picture was in the same dark room but close to a sheet of egg crate foam. This was from my recording space. Capturing a segment of the pattern and letting some fade into black was fun.

The last picture was less aesthetic and more fascinating from the point of how things work. Both of the high voltage leads were spaced far apart so they would not visibly arc, then a fluorescent spiral bulb got between the wires, and it lit up where the wires touched. I recommend that folks cautiously try this at home.
