Earlier this month, I discovered a photographer whose work stopped me in my tracks. Even the most jaded of people might even agree with me in saying that German photographer Marcus Reugels stands above the rest with his photographs.
The work that caught my attention features drops of water refracting the earth, or at least part of it.
One look at that, and you have to admit that this guy is absolutely brilliant! He has other photos along similar lines, but I think you might appreciate two of his recent pieces even more.
How about a couple of superheroes in a drop of water? Well, technically, it is not the superhero that can be seen, but the emblem. It is still one heck of a viewing experience, though. Here’s the first of the two superheroes in a drop of water: Batman.
If you thought that this is all about black and white, forget about it. See all those striated shades?
I’ve never been a huge Spiderman fan, but this drop of water is something else.
The artist’s other pieces are mainly of planets – Jupiter and Mars, for example. They are no less beautiful than the others, but I am hoping that he will come up with more photos of superheroes in a drop of water.
Oh, and if you want prints of his work, you can purchase them. Even better, you can get in touch with him if you have a particular subject that you want him to take photos of. Here’s more of Marcus Reugels.
