Bursting Balloon by 888rachel

Bursting Balloon

Taking picture of a bursting water balloon has been on my bucket list for ages. While Mr 13 and I were home with the flu together, I got Mr 13 to help with the popping. I was quite pleased with this attempt.
Thanks so much for your comments and fav's.
Nailed it, fantastic timing.

Cross one more off the bucket list. This is such a wonderful shot. You captured all those fleeting water drops bursting in all directions. And it's even an orange balloon. Love it.

I know, one of you sneezed and that set the balloon off. It's a wonder you're not up on Mars by now! I just love your work and look forward to your creativity each day

@lisamarie5 Of course you must use this idea. I would love to see your finished shot! Try to do it outside, as there is water everywhere at the end. Thanks!

@ethelperry Yes, we were sneezing a bit, but not enough for it to pop the balloon! Thanks so much for your generous comments and fav's. It's always nice hearing from you.
