PHOTO DAY 3: WATER

The brief:  Capture a water shot with the same image vertical and horizontal.

Water has been toying with me lately in the form of rain – too much rain.  I haven’t been able to work in my garden for days and it is becoming quite frustrating as there are overdue chores demanding urgent attention.  So to see the large dirty puddle in the driveway feels like it is mocking me.

REFLECTIONS IN A MUDDY PUDDLE


And yet my hanging baskets in the eaves are dry and thirsty…

FLORAL REFRESHMENT


I couldn’t help myself adding this one – but it feels like cheating because I took it with my phone.  I can’t remember the last time I used it to actually call anyone!

  1. Interesting how in the puddle picture the emphasis changes from the puddle to the tractor when you go vertical. I prefer horizontal to view on my laptop as I can’t see the whole of the vertical photo without scrolling. The reflection is good though. Good raindrop photo – nasturtium leaves are good for that aren’t they.

    • Hi Annette. I have a small screen too, but I know what you mean about the emphasis changing. I’d never really thought about that before.
      The nasturtium leaf is one of my favourite shots.
      Cheers Sarah : o )

  2. Now this I can relate to. Water, the amazingly fluid thing that has more power than a digger to remove huge chunks of our driveway all winter long. Your puddle is Bezial, our big black part Labrador dogs, idea of heaven. If you don’t want it he would be most happy to have it right in front of the house please to bask in whenever he is feeling even vaguely hot. Earl, our Amstaff says that you can keep it. He has enough puddles here and certainly doesn’t want to encourage us to even entertain the idea of “washing” him (“SHUDDER!” 😉 ). We had to do a very similar thing for our media course and take a landscape photo and turn it into a portrait shot. Curiously I chose a waterscape as well. It lends itself to change, much like the watery substances that inhabit these areas. Pretty soon we will both be complaining about the lack of precipitation so I am just going to enjoy that final droplet in a nasturtium leaf no matter what you took the photo with. It’s the loveliest shot of all 🙂

    • Hi Fran. The boffins are promising sunny skies. I shall throw caution into the wind and believe them. Some serious gardening will be occurring over the new few days, and about time too!
      I love the nasturtium leaf photo too and was so glad to have found a reason to share it.
      Cheers Sarah : o )

    • Hi Wendy. How lucky are you not to have the constant rain. I don’t mind working in the cold so much, but wet gardening is so disheartening. It just has to get better! I still haven’t planted my cucumbers.
      I hope your soaps are going really well, they look so lovely.
      Cheers Sarah : o )
