Duncan emailed me this a couple of weeks ago but I couldn’t post it as I didn’t (and still don’t) have internet access. Of course by the time I steal some of macca’s bandwidth, this video has been featured in as many places as Miley’s cameltoe…ok, maybe not that many.

Capturing the Faces of Water
Los Angeles-based artist, photographer and architect Moses Hacmon, originally from Tel-Aviv, Isreal, is on a quest to bring water to the world, but not in the way you may think. Trying to capture the essence of something that is not visible on its own is a daunting task. Water, as the most important life-giving element, is more elusive than one may think. We can’t see water because its clear. Its clarity is the result of light passing through it. What we do see when we look at water is light reflected off of its surface. Hacmon spent years studying water and developing specific photographic techniques to capture the elusive liquid in its true form. The artist states:
“I hope with Faces of Water to deepen our connection to our source of life, both spiritually and physically. I believe that visual information is capable of advancing the way we think and how we understand our environment. Seeing is believing, and this is the first time we truly see water in its pure form…”
Hacmon developed a technique involving a special type of film with a layer of liquid iron that records the movement of the water itself. The film provides full-size negatives from which he produces the pictures we see here. The series of images is called Faces of Water. Hacmon is currently fundraising in order to exhibit his work.

I was searching for a pic of a sidecar and found this. This isn’t a sidecar but it did stop me in my tracks.
