A bit Cliche...you bet... but fun as hell. I was washing the dishes when I looked over and saw the cookie sheet my wife has on a pan. Some drops were on it and it was reflecting the wallpaper which is red through it. So I got a little distracted and ran and got my camera and took a few shots. Don't expect this to do well but thought I would give it a try. Its my first attempt at drips.

I did not vote on this one, but it's great. Thanks for the description of how the shot occurred. That's how some of my best ones happen. Unfortunately, the timing is usually off for a challenge entry with my own finds.
