It would have been really cool if you put fish in the raindrops.

i love this picture!! the way the water drops reflect the world upside down and are falling...im sure there is some deep meaning or symbolism that could be read into that but i can't think of any! do think there is any? how did you get this shot? i mean it can't have been easy...

Hmm, I wasn't thinking of that when I took the photo, but maybe... I had to take about seventy photos to get this one. It was with a relatively cheap point-and-shoot digital camera, on which I couldn't even adjust the ISO and shutter speeds, so I waited until it was sunny yet still raining, so I could freeze the action as the camera would choose a faster shutter speed. Then I set the camera to Macro mode, and before each shot I'd lock the focus (by pressing the shutter button half-way down) by putting my hand in front of the camera at the same distance as the drops, because the camera would focus on the background instead of the drops if I let it have its way. I edited the photo on the computer to add contrast and convert to black-and-white.

that seems simple yet complicated! but you actively tried to acheive the shot- it wasnt a spur of the moment, oh-thats-pretty-i'll-just-whip-my-camera-out and take a photo type shot?

Thanks! Yeah, I spent a couple hours to get this one; not spur-of-the-moment at all. This was from June of 2006; now I have a fancy, expensive camera, so I can get better photos more easily.
