Hi Clive,

Not mushroom for any more texture in your first image, I know that Dave beat me to the Mushroom joke but I could't resist.

Week 37 Activity

Radioactivity
Mine and my wife's luminous watch hands.
Radioluminescent paint is a self-luminous paint that consists of a small amount of a radioactive isotope (radionuclide) mixed with a radioluminescent phosphor chemical. The radioisotope continually decays, emitting radiation particles which strike molecules of the phosphor, exciting them to emit visible light. The isotopes selected are typically strong emitters of beta radiation, preferred since this radiation will not penetrate an enclosure. Radioluminescent paints will glow without exposure to light until the radioactive isotope has decayed (or the phosphor degrades), which may be many years....Taken from Wikipedia.
This did not work as well as I hoped but it's Wednesday evening.

I was wondering what this was in the main thread - good lateral thinking/shoe horn
Thank you Shugpug, it is a bit of a shoehorn.

You’d never guess what it is. As mentioned, good lateral thinking.
How long was the exposure? Can’t have been easy to capture.
Hi Bebop, I used live time and let it run until it was bright enough, maybe a little too long I think. I manually focused with lights on the turned lights out and clicked, I think it was just over 10 seconds.

When I first saw that it thought it was the old game of tennis ( or what ever it was called)

Nicely shoehorned Clive (y)
