These are actual photographs of water droplets falling in front of a print of MC Escher's iconic 'Relativity'. There's a shot of the reddit photographer Smsilton's setup after the jump if you want to see how it was made, which, amazingly, didn't involve trapping a wizard in an hourglass and forcing him to freeze time. Or did it? I SAID SHOW ME THE HOURGLASS! Oh God Gandalf nooooooooooooooo!!
Hit the jump for the setup, which may or may yes have involved several stacks of CD's.
Thanks to Mary, who made a rainbow with a water hose and then took pictures of it. That's cheating!
