I may have this bottle of Merlot nearly forever, though after three drop art photo sessions it's now mixed with water, xanthan gum and a few drops of cleaning lotion. YUCK!

An homage to Sideways, eh!
I have no idea why the jet (column) suddenly began curving to the left. I had changed nothing about the system when that began happening. Similarly, later in the session when the jets suddenly became vertical again, I had also made no changes. Sometimes the molecules simply decide on their own where they want to go and what they want to do once they get there. That unpredictable characteristic is part of the fun so long as it doesn't drive ya absolutely nuts. :)

Thank you to Urban, Ron and Gary!

These again are different than most
I'm guessing that's because most drop art photographers usually show only their straight jets. Though I get a kick out of achieving a straight jet, especially because water-based liquids rarely produce them, the curved jets are artistically more appealing to me. Similarly, I think most photographers usually show their jets that are in one continuous column. I like that type of formation but I also like the jets that are broken up into droplets. As an example, I would think of captioning the first photo, Connect the Dots.
