Hello there fellow TP folks. :)

I have. And I became so enthralled with them, I decided to embark on a journey to construct a device that can create such images.

This is what I did and the way I did it.

I'm putting this up a couple of days early because I probably won't be in a fit state tomorrow or the day after :beer:

This is a monthly challenge, I will post a new theme drawn at random from a list of themes (Takes-on 2019 theme suggestions) at the start of each month. The challenge is to take up to 6 photos to the theme "liquid" in the month of January and post them in this thread. Constructive comments are encouraged and should also be posted in this thread. There is a discussion thread for general chat, ideas, etc.

Just to reiterate, photos should be shot and posted this month, January 2019 feel free to jump in whenever you like. Happy shooting :)

The previous month is here...
