“The water droplet is the quintessential cliché of high-speed photography. Any Internet search will produce a dizzying number of bursting and rippling liquid surfaces. Yet in the right hands, even the familiar can be extraordinary. Markus Reugels, a German amateur photographer who has perfected the theme, has produced an exhaustive catalog of his favorite subject captured in every conceivable, fleeting pose.“
AN : what would technology be without something to focus on…and what would that which captivates in turn reflect back except inherent beauty of thought and design ? Scientific and medical photography have revealved not only the mysteries of life but also its amazing symmetry and order. Pollen grains under magnification are unique to the point of being a botanical identification tool….at the same time they are objects of art in themselves.
Markus Reugels takes his passion and makes it come to life…even if it captures a millisecond of time. Kudos to him and those who similarily follow their passion in capturing images for us to enjoy.

“In the mid-19th century, during the early days of photography, it was a common practice to have your portrait made with the tools of your trade, hobby or passionate interest. Today, these images tell a wonderful story of trades and occupations during the growth of our nation. Most of these images (as noted) are from the Matthew R. Isenburg Collection of early photography, which was just sold to the Archive of Modern Conflict (AMC) for a record $15 million. The museum is in Toronto, Canada. This exhibition was assembled by my (author of this blog piece :John Foster ) friend Alan Griffiths, of Luminous Lint, a website dedicated to the history of photography.”
AN : an interesting practise to show the tools of your trade in a picture. Wonder what we would show if our tools are more cerebral than manual ?
