250 Rainbow Discs
One day this past winter, I was de-cluttering my desk and ended up with about 250 CDs to get rid of (guess I did a lot of CD-burning in college…). Before throwing them out, I thought to myself, “I should toss these CDs on the ground in a haphazard way and take some photos of the different interference colors reflecting from the sunlight!”…so I tossed the 250 discs on the ground and had fun with my camera. The above photo captures most of the 250 CDs, including a bunch of different kinds of CDs showing very colorful interference patterns.
Who knew old CDs could be so much fun!?! Click here to read more about the educational topic of light interference!
