London-based photographer Edward Horsford (previously featured here), shoots awesome high-speed photos of water balloons just a fraction of a second after they’ve been popped. The images are utterly mesmerizing. Those explosive moments, which ordinarily take place faster than our eyes can take them in, are frozen in time thanks to Edward’s skills. The water inside of the balloon still holds its shape as the balloon pulls away like the skin on a grape.
