Iconic Photo: 1957 Milk drop – Harold Edgerton

An engineer who yet had an eye for a beautiful photo – Harold Edgerton pushed the boundaries of super fast photography, so we could see the motions of liquids and other natural things in beautiful, slow motion.

With today’s extremely fast shutter cameras, we can try and set goals of taking photographs in motion – something which happens faster than the human eye can register – because they are compelling, unusual.  They also help us consider that we live in a wondrous environment which is constantly growing, changing, even in the light falling upon it – all of which is part of slowing down and becoming aware of the now and the beauty of natural physical events.
