Day 211

Today it's been tipping down all day, so it's not been an ideal day to take photos. I took the camera outside for two minutes to get some raindrop shots (with my lovely new lens, of course!), and then I hunted around the house for something interesting to shoot. It's pretty pathetic that the most interesting thing I could find was the packing materials that came in a parcel I received yesterday.

Oh well, tomorrow's another day! :-)


  1. That's a great shot of the peanuts. I thought it was burning coals or embers.

    The rain is gorgeous.

  2. I love the raindrops - a really great image. The packing chips look like alien eggs so I should get out while you can :-)

  3. Love the water splashes and the packing things look like little stones!

  4. Thanks for the kind comments, folks. I have to admit the packing peanuts shot is growing on me...a bit.

    The original shot was totally nondescript, so I livened it up in Photoshop by inverting the image (so that the shadows became a glowy white fog), and then bumping up the texture with a couple of copies of a high pass filter.

  5. OH I love the raindrop shot. Wonderful work.
