Water balloons. Great for hot summer days, pranking annoying people and, erm, using as part of an elaborate photography project.
High-speed photographer Scott Dickson created these images by adding a pair of sunglasses/hat/novelty accessory to a water balloon, and then photographing its splashy demise.
Dickson is a photographer specialising in high speed water splash photography, so it was only inevitable that at some point he'd want to mix stuff up a bit.
These photos are the product of Dickson's elaborate home-built rigs and setups, which use a variety of background and colour effects to enhance the images - as well as capture them in a split second.
