Also, I finally finished assembling the support for my next project (fingers crossed that painting will be done / posted around the end of the month). Have a great weekend, everyone!
Forrest Gump: “One day, it started raining… and it didn’t quit for four months! We’ve been through every kind of rain there is: little bit of stinging rain… and big ‘ol fat rain… rain that flew in sideways… and sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.”
– Tom Hanks – Forrest Gump

Those water droplets are something else. They’re magical water droplets. Is that a telephone pole? That is my guess, anyway. You must tell me what it is. This is very cool. I hope your day is sunny tomorrow! Happy Valentine’s Day, Robert!
Good eye, B.F! It is indeed a telephone / power pole (one of those… I’m not really sure which… about all I do know is it had a light hanging off it. And it was by a Home Depot. That I know, too.)!
Thank you so very much, Amy! I hope you and Mr. Bumble have a very happy Valentine’s day, too!
Nice to be on the other side of the glass, hm? In order to stay dry and look at the beauty of the raindrops.
it’s what rainy days were made for, I think, anyway.
Nice and simple, but great tones! 😀
Thank you very much, sir!
Usually I play around with all my photos in Photoshop (even my camera-phone shots), but for some reason this one seemed to be working for me right out-o-the phone.
Nice rainy snapshot! xxx
Why, thank you sir!
Very, very much!
You can make the most simplest shots looks so darn amazing, Sig!
Looking forward to your end of the month posting. You and Annabelle have a great weekend! 🙂
You are always so very kind, Deb!
I’ll do my best… the more that I look at this painting the more I think, ‘Hmm… maybe I’ve underestimated my time-requirements, here’!
Thanks again, Deb! I hope you have a good one, too!
Interesting perspective. This would make a fantastic drawing/painting (if this is a photograph…)
Thank you, sir! I played around with ‘straightening’ the pole in Photoshop… but in the end I just kinda liked the skew, for some reason.
It is indeed a photo, but I completely agree! That’s a very cool idea!
Nice shot of the water droplets!!! I don’t remember Forest talking about rain like that…I need to watch that movie again 🙂 I’m intrigued by your comment about your painting….must be large, if you need support…..hmm? Have a great weekend!!!
Thank you so much, Mary! Come to think about it… it’s been a while since I’ve seen it, too!
I just hope I didn’t underestimate how long it’s going to take, now. And I hate to give away too much, but there may (or may not) be some aluminum involved…
I know all your tricks, mister, and that is clearly a photo of droplets overlaid on a background. No smartphone could take a picture that pretty. Plus, there’s, like, a graduated blur on it. I’m not buying any of it.
I think it’s so funny only one other person asked about that, U.M – wow – you are really, really paying attention! This one’s actually for real-zies, though. Which I think just might be a first for me (on this blog, anyway)!
For some reason, now I feel like having shrimp. Fried shrimp. Boiled shrimp. Shrimp cocktail. Shrimp…
Have a great shrimp-filled weekend, SIG!
Hahaha… What luck! I’ve got a few shrimp just laying around the boat!
Thanks so much, Ms. C! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, too!
I absolutely LOVE photographs like this! I did one around Halloween with rain all over the window and the Halloween props & lights were shining in the background. Looked pretty cool. Keep up the awesome work! You Rock! Happy Valentine’s Day!
I really like doing these, too! Sometimes I ‘fake them’ by shooting things through wet glass, even… but this one set itself up for me, so I couldn’t resist!
How ridiculously kind of you! Thank you so very much! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s as well!
Awesome photo, Inky! So glad it’s not raining today though. Totally would have ruined the blue skies, sunshine, and VD hairdos. Hah!
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
So true! I must have spent a good thirty seconds on mine today! 😉
Thank you so much, Dishy! I hope your family had a wonderful one, too!
Looks damp. Soggy. Sodden. WET!
Hope your Valentine’s Day is a bit sunnier! 😎
*squish squash* Check!
Thanks so much, Nancy! I hope you had a great one, too!
Very moody and pretty, makes me glad you were on the dry side of those droplets!
Thank you very much, Madame!
Me too! Me too!
I hope you at least pulled the car over to the side of the road to get this great shot.
“assembling the support” – sounds heavy duty! I can’t wait to see it.
Luckily I was in the passenger seat… not that I mean to imply anything about my ‘driving’ ability, but… *shudders*
There may or may not be some aluminum involved… probably shouldn’t say too much more yet, though.
Is this a rear view miror shot? Were you driving?
No worries, Loon… parking lot of a Home Depot… everything I ran into was already stationary… so…
Lovey evocative image. 🙂

Every punk gets lucky sometimes!
Beautifu subject, framing, and processing. Just great.
How incredibly kind of you to say, sir – thank you very, very much!
Have a great weekend. The image is very cool even if it’s normal scene.
Thank you very much, sir! I hope that you and your family are having a very nice weekend, too!
Aha, it’s the window. I thought maybe you forgot to come in out of the rain…? Cool shot.
Hahaha… usually I go out there on purpose thinking I’ll find something cool. And I’m back inside 5 minutes later wondering what I was thinking!
Water drop shots are my fav!!!
Excellent! I’m very happy to hear that, R.N.P!
Nice! And it makes me want to go to the public library!
Thank you so very much!
AH! That sounds like a plan – I LOVE going to the library! Especially on a rainy day!
End of the month? You are lazier than me!
ZZZzzz Huh? What? Who, me?!
This is beautiful SiG – it reminds me of an English summer! I love how each raindrop has its own place on the glass. What a steady hand you must have!
How kind of you to say, Ms. D! I would love to experience an English summer… it’s ridiculously beautiful in my mind!
Hahaha… oh, how I wish! I’m SO shaky (I think I was just trying to ‘rest’ the phone on the dash here). Seriously… I would need a tripod on the face of the sun – it’s ridiculous!
Is that really rain on a window, or is this another one of your staged ones? Looks good either way.
I was so surprised no one had asked me that yet!!! This one is actually a real one (how bizarre for me, right)?!
Anyway, thank you very, very much, sir!
A real one? Now that’s bizarre!
Hey look! It’s my version of the wetplate technique. 🙂 Love it.
Are you psychic, Ms. D?! Because I may or may not have been working on one-o-the other version for Monday…
what?? we have to wait??!! Awwww man!
And oh yeah, the tone on this image is pretty cool!
I hope you don’t have to wait even longer than I first estimated… my ‘progress’ so far isn’t looking a whole lot like progress!
these are the times that try men’s souls…. 😉
Hahaha… I feel the very same way… and I’m the hold-up!
Smart phone cameras are entirely too convenient.
Hahaha… maybe so. Although sometimes the best tool is the available tool.
Can’t beat a good droplet photo!
Many thanks, sir! Instant atmosphere via the atmosphere!
Brilliant Bob, looking good for smartphone captured 🙂
Thank you very much, sir! It was a bit tricky to get the thing focused – a lot of fun, too, though!
It was a glorius sunny day over here on Sunday 🙂 There was a classic Ealing Studios film called ‘It Always Rains on Sunday’ – a crime drama starring Googie Withers and culminating in a chase around the railway sidings. Worth a watch if you find the time 🙂
Love the concept and the toning – the light can be quite yellow like that when there’s a storm about 🙂
Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a Sunday, Martin! I’ll have to keep an eye peeled… sounds very interesting!
I’m such a sucker for that ‘strange’ yellow/green light… something kind of eerie / haunting / mysterious about it… maybe because I always associate it with approaching storms, too.
It rained here on Monday. It didn’t get me down. Nice photo
Way to be, Tony!
And thank you, sir!
this could have been captured here today! lots of rain in the forecast for the next few days.
but it does make for a great composition. really like the mood here. i can just imagine the windshield wipers of an old car crossing the screen at any moment now…. thanks for sharing.
Thanks, P&K! We’ve had lots of sunshine the last two days – very nice to see (because only a few days before we had the biggest snowfall of the season)! Still a bit on the cold side out there… but the sun always helps… I hope you get some very soon, too!
