THE VIEW OF MY FRONT STEPS DURING THE POURING RAIN YESTERDAY:
These photographs were taken mid-day yesterday ,while it was pouring rain outside. I’ve been wanting to tkae photographs of rain and raindrops, but I wasn’t sure how I was to go about doing this without getting my camera wet (besides me shooting through the window). I stepped outside to watch the storm, and I saw an incredible sight worth photographing. My front steps are made out of stone (not sure what type), so the water was pooling on top of edge step as the rain was falling heavily. I found the reflections to be beautiful and vividly clear. There is also some algae on our steps (they need a good pressure-washing), but the green added some flavor to the sandstone hues. Luckily, the stoop leading to my front steps is covered, so I had great coverage while shooting these images. I took multiple angles and multiple viewpoints of the reflections I saw. The wrought iron railing, flanking the steps, added a piece of geometric architecture to some of the compositions and made for a nice contrast against the soft hues of the stone. I love the thick, diagonal lines that graced the water’s surface with its presence. This is the first set of photographs in a series of posts to come this week involving views of the pouring rain … and they are all different takes on the rain. I love photographing on overcast or rainy days because the greens in the earth glow so vibrantly. I feel as if mother nature is fighting back humanity in her battle to cleanse the earth and rid it of human-related filth. These shots were just for fun but I thought some of them turned out beautifully. Please feel free to leave feedback… I sincerely appreciate it!
