When a trip to CERN was mooted last year, I didn't take much persuading that it would be a great place to see. The only issue in my photographer head was whether it too could be satisfied. The website says it's cool to take photos anywhere so that was a start, but I was still a bit sceptical. This is high level tech. But when we got there, it became clear - CERN is a collaborative effort between many countries - there can't be any secrets about what it does, else it wouldn't work. Shoot away, they said. So I did. An amazing place that challenges your concept of the world around you, not only in terms of the theoretical physics (which is so obtuse as to be way beyond the comprehension of most people) but also in the scale of the civil engineering and computing challenges they deal with. I'm still trying to get my head around some of the things we saw.
All of these shots were with the X10
