And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take
thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of
Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their
ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may
become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all
the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.
-Exodus 7:19



Technicals: First of all, the showerhead and pipe
were disconnected from the shower itself, then 'blood' (red
and pink food dye mixed with water) was poured into the
tube. Fourthletter (who has by now learned to smile
and nod when I say "I have this great idea for a photo...")
held the end of the tube and the showerhead until I
focused, and then blew into the end of the tube, forcing the
water out of the showerhead. This was a one-shot-only
deal because we didn't have any more food dye, and
dammit, it WORKED!

The suggester says; "In Exodus 7:19 `RockstarVanity shows us how one can easily (but not without thought) obtain a piece of art that makes us use "perfect" and "horrid" in the same sentence."

Thanks! I love how flash captures droplets of liquid in motion. It's something I haven't really used much in photos and should really experiment with more because it's really fun to work with.

Why not any other version? It's just a version of the bible.

*Goes to get bible for reference* Oh that part... nice XD... just needed to refresh my mind on that, I read all of exodus like, two years ago, before that genesis, then after I finished Exodus I started reading Leviticus, I stopped at chapter 15 cause it was basically all rituals and I got kinda bored of it. My goal was to read the whole bible, at least the old testament, I already read proverbs... 3 times, I read one chapter everyday for 3 months, on the first of the month chapter 1, second, 2, third, 3, and so on and so forth -__- I had a lot of free time... ugh, now the spiritual atmosphere I had 2 years ago is back -__- I blame my vague curiosity, that convinced me to pick up my bible again... oh well..

Nice photo BTW :3

Even though I'm a Pagan-not-otherwise-specified, I find religious imagery from all belief systems to be incredibly rich and inspirational. The old testament is full of some amazingly dark stuff!
