February 25, 2007
A few days ago, just after it had been raining, I went out in the garden, camera in hand, looking for some interesting photos. I was assuming that I’d find something amongst the leaves and flowers in the garden, but nothing jumped out and screamed “Photograph me…!”. Just as I was getting a bit fed up of the whole process I spotted this:
It isn’t brilliant, but I liked the fact that you could see the house opposite through the drop, and that the drops are outlined in the green of the washing line. It also gave me a chance to play with super-macro mode on the camera – the lens was about 2cm from the drop when this was taken!
It would have been interesting to try and get the house in focus through the drop – a serious challenge to the manual focus facility on my camera, I suspect, which on the whole is pretty difficult to use. Maybe I’ll give it a go next time…
