I love this picture. It shows artist Salvadore Dali, several cats, and some water all in mid-air. It was done in 1948 when digital trickery was still a long way off. When photographer Philippe Halsman counted to four, Dali juped up, 3 assistants threw cats, one threw water from a bucket and Mrs. Halsman held the chair. It only took 26 tries and five+ hours to get it right.
