When I was reading about Beryllium I found out about a lot of cool things…
Because of its relatively high transparency to X-rays and other ionizing radiation types, Beryllium also has a number of uses as filters and windows for radiation and particle physics experiments. And because of its very low density, high melting point, high temperature stability, it has been used in rocket nozzles and space telescopes.
Commercial use of beryllium metal presents technical challenges due to the toxicity (especially by inhalation) of Beryllium-containing dusts. Beryllium produces a direct corrosive effect to tissue, and can cause a chronic life-threatening allergic disease called Berylliosis in susceptible persons.
So I had a choice for the picture, I could do something with x-rays or the the disease Berylliosis. I took the shots for both a few nights ago and since I was sick last night (and well almost always lol)I thought it only fitting to do the Berylliosis. 🙂 I thought a miner coughing would portray that nicely 🙂 Since part of the symptoms include cough and shortness of breath chest pain, joint aches, weight loss and fever. Ultimately, this leads to restrictive lung disease. 🙁 It is treatable but curable lol kinda like what I have! lol
I ended up staying home sick today too. I am starting to feel a bit better, but am still down for the count. its too bad too since its such a nice day out!! lol But there is nothing like watching cartoons all day in my PJ’s 😛 The kitties are all hanging with me too!
In this shot: Again mostly photoshop, CS4. (but soon to be CS5!)
