Bursting Balloons

Taken with a slighly shorter delay such that the rubber is still retracting. You can see that when my fingers aren’t extended, the rubber has a tendancy to catch.

Water balloon just after burst. Yes I got wet. Very pleased with this one, particularly the rippled texture on the rubber.

Less rounded form on this one. More like my hands are containing the blast, rather than supporting it. You can just see the sides of the balloons near my hands.

This one was both fun and challenging. Required extra attention in dealing with the string and making sure the orientation worked out.
