Earlier this week, it poured rain for a day and a half straight. These photographs were taken late in the afternoon, while the rain was still heavy and the light was still bright enough to capture beautiful interior compositions. The window depicted is in my husband and I’s bathroom. I am drawn to this oval-shaped window because of its vintage charm and placement above our claw-foot bathtub. These shutters were placed on the exterior of the window in order to give those taking a bath a bit of privacy… and I love the sight of light filtering through them, which showers rays of light upon the bathtub below. Whenever I pass this window in the daylight, it evokes a sense of spirituality and nostalgia for past within me. During the rainstorm, I noticed how intensely the raindrops were clinging to the tilted, wooden shutters. The window panes were splattered with dripping raindrops, so I put my camera in manual mode in order to focus in on the shutters. The result was a nice blurred effect which, in turn, acted as a hazy filter to shoot these raindrops through. I loved this effect… which might not be the clearest of views… but it added to the emotional sense I wish to evoke in these compositions. Vintage, claw-foot bathtubs have long been a love of mine, so perhaps that is why I feel a spiritual connection to this sight. They make me think of my grandparents, and how objects were built to last, back in their days. And I pass this sight frequently, day after day. I adore the charm attached to vintage items.
As I began exploring the shutters with my camera, I was fascinated by the natural order and, alignment, of these raindrops. They were aligned in rows, clinging as individual drops to the painted woodgrains. I love how water operates… how the molecules cling together for as long as they can until they spill off an object… Tis a beautiful sight in mine eyes. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the photographs below… my heart goes out to those without rain… such as those in Texas currently and directly affected by the raging wildfires. Although, I hear it has rained some over there… but the news keeps displaying the devastation and current rage of those fires… so those folks are in my thoughts. Rain should never be the subject of a complaint… but I also feel for those affected by all the flooding. Nature is a crazy, powerful thang 🙂
