Well they need to kill him again I reckon.

The Science Museum of Minnesota has a real cross section of a human body. (actually, two, one side to side and one back to front) They are encased in gel and on display. I found it fascinating, my husband found it disturbing. lol

And he would've got away with it if it weren't for those pesky cross-sections!

That's a really neat picture, but the explanation kind of spoils it. Knowing how the magician does his tricks takes away from the entertainment value.

Does this mean the backgrounds were just pasted in? If not, a blurry assistant would be part of the image, right?

Anyone else think this should be in the bacon thread?

I think the assistant was holding the monitor in front of them, so the assistant stayed in the relative darkness. Then after the image made it into the camera from the monitor, they could shoot off a flash to illuminate the whole scene without the assistant in the shot. The only light source during the time it took to make the image was probably that street light, but if they set the exposures right, they could have made it so the assistant wasn't lit up enough to appear in the final image.

This may not be a good thing, either he(it) will come back 1871 times to haunt us or "Ghost Hunters" will have a 1,871 marathon (one hour for each slice.)

These are some beautiful pictures. I'd like to see more of them. It's interesting, however, that the designer/coder for the website didn't disable the ability to pull and save the images off the page, considering they're asking $700 for each print.

I ordered a bunch of them. They haven't arrived. Ah well, some day my prints will come.

You'll have to kiss a bunch of frogs first.

There was an entire traveling display of plasticized human bodies and parts of bodies here in KC awhile back. It was interesting, although the ones riding bicycles, playing tennis, etc, were kind of unsettling.
