Photographers do some crazy things to get the perfect shot.
Nevertheless, this photographer's approach to getting water droplets behind his model was innovative (and pretty funny).
I call it "an elegant use of brute force."
It's hard to argue with results ... and sometimes the answer doesn't have to be creative (it just has to work).
It's the same with modern computing. We can perform better and faster than ever before, and a lot of it is because of prettier code, and smarter tools, and more skilled employees. But, sometimes, what it takes is an elegant use of brute force!
