Conflict of Viscosity by TanyaSimoneSimpson Conflict of Viscosity by TanyaSimoneSimpson
Ever since reading that the phrase Blood is thicker than water may not refer to family ties being stronger than other relationships, but rather that the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb (this blog post on Fields of Poetry explains it in more detail, with sources), I’ve wanted to create a piece of art involving both blood and water. Since I’m loving macro photography so much these days, I broke out my Polaroid macro lens and made this picture. I wanted to express how the meaning and depth of different types of relationships are affected by our experiences within and between those relationships and that human connections don’t happen in a vacuum but instead are continuously evolving as we see them reflected in others.

For a step-by-step tutorial with materials list for this photo, see Fake Blood and Water Droplet Macro With Tutorial on RockstarVanityPhotoBlog.com.

This could easily have fitted in the Macro or Conceptual photography but I went for Horror & Macabre because, well, horror :aww:

The clarity of that waterdrop is stunning!

Really couldn't leave this piece without saying that. :D

Thank you! This is my first attempt at a water droplet macro and I know I have a million miles to go with that technique but I'm really happy with how this one turned out.

I think you have made this sufficiently unique that we don't feel you still have a million miles to go. :D
