Planets in the kitchen?

For fun tonight we tried an idea we’d read about and got these cool shots of oil droplets in water. The first one looks to me like a planet or maybe the moon and some of them look like marbles or apples. It’s a really simple and quick thing to set up that leaves you with interesting abstract photos. All we did was get a clear glass jug of water, dripped a few drops of oil into it and placed it on top of coloured paper, making sure we had a good light shining on it. We stirred it around from time to time with a chopstick to stop the droplets from all merging into one.
