somewhere between yesterday and today is a journal asking why we are here. This picture I'm pretty sure was the first one I saw in your gallery, and I've been a watcher ever since.

If I had to guess, I'd say the rose petals are filled with water, and then without much delay the rose is pulled quickly downward through the frame, and a well timed shot is taken. A few ounces of water between the petals would be suspended as the rose is pulled down faster than gravity can pull the water, but the droplets on the leaves have enough surface tension to stick. Very nice shot regardless.
