An "outtake" from Liquid in Motion. Actually, I like this one significantly better, but I expected low ball votes from those thinking this wasn't in motion enough.

This was a great science experiment. I started with whole milk and food coloring. Dropping that into water came up with fun shapes, but that wasn't creative enough.

So I poured in some vegetable oil, just enough to cover the surface of the water. As I dripped milk, it was cool to see the oil holding up the milk. I had to keep dripping before getting enough weight for the whole glob to pull down together. When it did, it quickly fell, the bubbles burst, and I watched the oil float back to the surface.

What fun! And I got what I consider to be unique shots. At least I have never seen anything quite like this.

One of my top picks, I was your 9 vote! I found this to be such a fun, and different shot. Very unique and it stood out from the rest IMO.
