I was taking some photos of a vase tonight using colored water, a handheld flash and some . . . nonstandard equipment. I inadvertently bumped the vase, nearly knocking it over. In the next split-second as I watched the water slosh and spill over the mouth of the vase, the following thoughts ran through my head:
- Rats! That paper (backdrop) is ruined.
- Ooh! Sloshing water! There might be a picture in this!
- I will NOT let that paper die in vain! (Seriously – I’m a bit twisted – that is word-for-word what I thought.)
I then reached for my camera and captured the spill shot seen here, which just begged for a bit of dissection.
