Picture of the day: Water (no) Balloon

By Brian | October 15, 2010 | Share on Facebook

Courtesy of NPR’s The Picture Show, here’s a sample of photographer, Edward Horsford’s high-speed work:

Using a complex system of lighting, sound-activated flash techniques and such, Mr. Horsford has managed to capture the water inside a water balloon just after the balloon breaks and just before the water loses the shape of the balloon and goes “splat” all over the floor.

It’s water balloons without the balloons!

    Only you could figure out how to start getting to parts of National Public Radio that actually can’t be put on the radio.

    This was sent to me by someone we both know who works for NPR.

    As it turns out, I’ve never actually listened to NPR on an actual radio. But I have been to their website, downloaded a couple of their podcasts, and even went to one of their shows live (“Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” in Chicago).
