Chris, does say the following if you are interested in trying, other than that a raindrop would do.

Anything with a wateryg droppy theme,from raindrops on kittens to water drop setups, although I would especially like to see efforts at the latter which I have never managed to get quite right but which are, nevertheless a lot of (soggy) fun to try.

Maybe I should have taken a shot of the water dripping fast through my landing ceiling before I managed to turn off the stop cock and call the plumber! Waiting for him now :(

It will still be dripping, so get your camera and shoot away.
If it is an English plumber, you'll have plenty of time.

No - plumber`s now been and done the job 15 mins before he said he`d get here. £75 lighter for new ballcock and gubbins. Maybe I should not have bought that used 50mm 1.4 lens earlier after all ;)

Does it have to be water, Howard?  I tried one with milk a few years ago, and would be interested in trying something with paint after watching this cool video.  In it two guys pour paint on an old speaker and turn it up to full volume while recording in super slo mo.

Ogga, playing around with milk or paint could be mesy fun - rather you than me - although in fairness the theme is water drop and there are some entries already in. So I think we had better stick to water for this week. Of course you can colour it or thicken it I suppose, as long as it water to start with.

Sorry to hear about your ceiling Paul - make sure it doesn't collapse on top of you.

Just spent some time mucking about with water and sundry bits and bobs. Like Alan I don't have any retorts, and I can't find my microphone stands anywhere (how do they manage to hide?), so I used a step ladder with an old bit of wood on it to make a high up platform for an old 2 litre plastic bottle to be the header tank, got a piece of plastic tubing and fixed it to the head of an (unplugged) desk lamp placed about 40cm above a Pyrex™ bowl on a workmate in the garage. I didn't bother with a remote release, just squeezed the shutter gently. My main problem was focusing. I was using the macro lens, which I think was a mistake as it does not have sufficient depth of field to get the whole of a splash sharp.

I did try with on camera flash with the Lumix, but that was just too bright, and I didn't have time to muck about too much with that. I took some pictures of the setup, but then deleted them by accident. File recovery software can't find them, alas.

Never in the field of human endeavour has so much effort been expended to achieve something so mundane! ;)


It seems to be turning out to be a test of dexterity and mechanics rather than a test of photography.  :doh:

I'm thinking calling in Heath Robinson for help to invent a water drip apparatus that will ensure a picture that doesn't resemble the other million or so out there.

The problem is, if it is a jumping water drop, it will resemble the others.
I'm not particularly keen on them, so I won't even try.
Not having the space, time or right equipment would make it a real struggle. And all for something I don't really want to do.

Weather forecast seems good for other types of drop though, so I haven't given up altogether.

Reinardina, you could drop something into water, that would be a "watery droppy thing" as per brief.

I know, but I want to do it outside, in a puddle or a stream. The weather forecast may indicate, it has to be raindrops. Maybe falling in a puddle, if I can 'get' it without getting my camera wet.
I'll see what I can do, as I am a bit housebound at the moment.

Here is my entry, my gorgeous border collie who has an obsession with water. Not quite a watery, droppy image, but I've no hope to get one like those shown. It does have water drops though

Well, went out for a ride, washed bike and saw this, on theme as a watery drippy thing so in with this, macro shot of the bike chain complete with drip.

That's the sort of thing I'd have been looking for. Had some ideas, but haven't been out much this week, so probably no entry from me.
