Spring rain. Soft and even light, emerging greens, dampened sounds, drops on windows…there are a lot of things I like about rainy days. Most appealing from a photographic standpoint is the potential for capturing reflecting light in water and that had been the goal for the day – I looked for photo ops everywhere I went (walking, driving, whatever).
Instead, when I got home – jelly beans!
We have plenty of plants and trees and decorative objects around the yard that would have made great subjects in the rain and when I got home I had a plan to hit the yard. But, as often happens, that plan quickly got chucked once I saw the jelly beans. I grabbed a handful, placed them on a cutting board, and placed that on the back of a chair in front of a window. A pop of color against the drab backdrop out the window.
