What to do when you’re waiting out a really heavy rain in a parking lot? Why, take pictures of the rain of course! In this case, the rain that was running down the side window of my car. Things were a little tricky because the rain was fast and heavy which meant the drops were on the move. Throw in macro range shooting and by the time I focused and tried to make somewhat of a composition, things changed.
This was the best I could do with the gads of unsuccessful shots I took. Either the focus was off or the drops were gone by the time I snapped the shutter. The square crop worked good here, although it was somewhat of a necessity. What wasn’t a necessity was doing a black and white conversion – the color image looked the same! 🙂
The result looks great. Sometimes, random structures like these are more beautiful than any composition. There is some order and some disorder, drops of several scales, in short, the picture is interesting and beautiful.
Thanks. I always like happy accidents, even tbough I try to plan as much as I can.
I love the rain. And this picture makes me love the rain even more! 🙂
