House. Upside Down.

DAY 49

18 FEB 09

Day 49 brought more much-needed rain for drought-stricken Atlanta. Sometimes it seems like we're always getting rain, but the news only presents more doom and gloom with regard to our drought condition. While I'm not complaining about the rain, I am getting tired of hearing how horrible conditions are.

Could just be my mood, though.

At any rate, during a break in the rain, I came home from my daily errands. As I got out of my truck, I realized one of the trees in the front yard had little bitty raindrops hanging off each and every branch. It almost made the tree look diamond-dipped, and that was way cool. I tried to capture what I saw, but the picture didn't work, darn it all. It just looked like a big, wet tree. So I decided instead to try concentrating on the individual drops.

I was pretty excited when I downloaded this photo, because I saw something that I couldn't see in the LCD when I took the picture -- a reflection in the drop. It's my house! Upside down! How cool is that?

Yes, I'm easily entertained.

Post-production included sharpening, noise reduction, curves adjustment, and border addition.


  1. You mean you didn't plan that?? Very cool capture!

  2. Nice refraction

  3. Heather -- No, didn't plan it at all. It was a happy accident! I love happy accidents.

  4. Really a lovely shot. Sometimes our camera sees more than we thought we saw.

  5. Susanvg -- You've got that right! I love those moments of discovery.
