Freed from a suspended balloon a fraction of a second earlier, water maintains a balloon-like shape for a fraction more—long enough for Serge Raymond to capture the moment in a picture featured in National Geographic.
This image clearly shows the use of photoshop, in which the creator has ironically and cleverly manipulated the natural flame on the candle to represent its opposition 'water'. What a beautiful contradiction.
One quote I chose was "Let go or be dragged." This kind of plays off the idea of how much stress we hold on to or how much weight we give to events of the past. Water, feathers, and the implied weigh the amount of wire used is one way to convey this.
