Great concept and well executed. How'd you get it to spray without getting a finger in the pic?? Very creative subject matter as well!

Thanks so much, Sanjay, Jean, Marcie, Cathy and Murry!

Marcie, I actually depressed the nozzle with a small piece of metal and then cloned it out in Photo Impact..lol. The tricky part was depressing the nozzle with one hand, while trying to compose the shot with the other hand since I didn't have a tripod available and didn't want to ask a co-worker to aid and abiet!

Well captured Donald - I was trying to figure out how you did this (so thanks for your earlier response to the Q from Marcie).
Very clever !
