When I heard that the subject for this months show and tell would be water, I honestly had no idea what I would submit (if anything at all). Maggie had shown me a shot she found online of a water balloon bursting captured at a really high shutter speed. It looked cool enough, but it was lacking something. But what?

Ah, yes. It needed someone stupid enough to stand below the bursting balloon!

So I went down to the garage, set up a tripod and a reflector, and went to work. After a lot of trial and error with the remote release, I finally got a few that actually looked pretty cool.
