Ornamental Explosions? by Alan Sailer

Alan Sailer's been called a grinch. The California-based photographer recently took a few of his leftover ornaments, his camera, and his high-speed pellet rifle to his garage for an experiment. 

The result is The War Against Christmas, a series of high-speed photos of his exploding ornaments he says are a "a satiric take on the semi-famous Bill O'Reilly diatribe about his imaginary "secular progressive agenda" against Christmas."
