"To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in very extreme circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something very important about the human condition of the ethical life: that it is based on a trust in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it’s based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something rather fragile, but whose very particular beauty is inseparable from its fragility."
- Martha Nussbaum

Flying Beverages, Photo Series by Manon Wethly | Website

Belgium-based photographer and designer Manon Wethly used her Instagram account to start this incredible personal project featuring captures of airborne drinks.

“No liquid is safe from being catapulted in front of her camera, Wethly uses coffee, milk, juice, water and other drinks to get the perfect mix of form and color to make some pretty fantastic shots. She says most of the photos are captured with her iPhone though she’s also begun experimenting with larger cameras.” (via)
