Liquid Photos By Super Dad

It’s a bird…It’s a plane… It’s Super Dad! Looking at the amazing photo above of Superman in a drop of water, you would think that it was taken by someone who studied photography for most of his/her life, but in fact, Markus Reugels picked up this hobby (on the side of his full-time parquet laying job) just three years ago.
