Rainy Day Photos While Staying Dry

Rainy Day

What do you do if you want to take photos on a rainy day and you don’t want to get wet?┬áThese photos came about by accident. I had some time on my hands at work, it was pouring outside, and I wanted to take some pictures. Silly me, I didn’t think to bring an umbrella. Besides, not much is blooming in the courtyard and I’m tired of photographing raindrops in puddles.

I sat by a large window in the dairy cafeteria and watched the rain running down the glass in wide rivulets. When I noticed that the running water distorted the view of the olive trees and pampas grass outside, I switched to manual focus and focused somewhere between the trees outside and the glass.  These are some of the results of my experiments.
