Black Holes can ruin your day. They swallow up entire planets sometimes. My uncle has been searching for them with a gigantic laser beam in Louisiana. I wish I could go on and on about them, but they are definitely above my paygrade.
The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory is a large-scale physics experiment to detect gravitational waves.

A friend was kind enough to lend me her 50mm F1 Noctilux so I could do a few test exposures. I had never used one before. It is heavy and the one attribute which it has is that at F1 it turns everything but the subject, into total mush…
I like it but doubt I’ll ever have the extra $$$ laying around to buy one.
