Oil and Water

March 25, 2012

This past weekend was a lot of fun and very tiring. We stayed at the Legoland Hotel this past weekend just as it was being invaded by Star Wars characters. Coming to breakfast to see armed storm troopers is a great sight. 🙂

Anyway, the picture below was a lot of fun to create. Oil drops in water, with wrapping paper underneath. One child doing the lighting, the other pressing the trigger button and me doing the focusing… fun 🙂


  1. Love it! Love the colors 🙂

  2. Sounds like a great team effort! Nice idea – I like how it’s turned out 🙂

  3. great stuff!

  4. what a fun project to get your kids involved in photography with you.

  6. Always something to do on a wet grey day when you can’t go out with the camera

  7. Very cool effect, and great that you had some assistance 🙂

  8. Oil and water might not mix, but that team effort sure produced a winning photograph, Nigel! So creative! And very, very cool!
