What in the world?

After wiping as much of the shaving cream off as possible, I tossed some water from a small cup I had used in the thinning process.  As the water splashed against the glass, still lit by my modeling lamps, something caught my attention.  It was just a glance, but it left me dangling about what I thought I saw.  I triggered my camera on the next toss and this is what I caught.  

I couldn't believe what I saw.  The longer I looked at it, the more I laughed.  This was not what I was trying to create.  This was a total accident - and it was so much better than what I had in mind!  I had to do more.  For the next six months, I spent a lot of time throwing water at my camera.  I discovered it was quite a fun sport.  There's a lot of timing to catching the water as it hits.  And it takes a lot of control.  I think that was the best part because it made me focus.    I thought it similar to my baseball career when I was a kid.  

I've never done anything remotely similar to this.  I find it interesting that the largest surge of inspiration in my life came when I decided I was going to just play in my studio.  Yea, I'd call that a pretty good guidepost.
