First, I know I’ve been gone. I’m sorry to all three of you that remember me.
Second, I know this has been done before, such as here, but I recently got a blacklight for my rock collection. Since most of my rocks weren’t interesting, I turned it on my shelf of Bionicles instead and got a whole lot more excitement out of some plastic rather than millions of years of geology. The results were hard to photograph, but mostly I want to spread the word that these guys look sick under ultraviolet light. (Blacklights are fairly inexpensive, I got mine at Walmart, but just make sure you’re buying an ultraviolet light rather than a dark purple light or something.) Blacklights also seem to supercharge glow in the dark pieces (in case you’ve ever needed to do that), and can be balanced with regular light to illuminate transparent pieces under normal lighting. So if you’re into photographing your Bionicles or whatever, try out a blacklight!
