365.161 june showers on silk flowers

After failing to capture the groovy clouds on the way home—from the window of the speeding Golf—I was gazing blankly off into space, trying to come up with an idea for a shot to make, when I noticed it was raining a bit.

Nice.

And then I noticed the pretty reflection of the fake flowers in the wet concrete edge of the fountain.

And then it stopped raining, so outside we went.

I got about 20 really good shots of the inside of a fogged up L37c filter, wiped off the filter, and snapped this one, just as the rain started up again.

So all was not lost, and I did come up with an idea for a shot, which I’ve added to the shot list for another day when I missed the shot and can’t think of anything to shoot… (of course, I didn’t even think to check the shot list today, so I don’t know what makes me think I’ll remember to check it in the future, but who knows…)

D7000. Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 ai. ISO800, 1/20th (AP mode), f/8, -2EV (leftover from yesterday: RESET THE CAMERA JAMES!!!!!), and not as much processing in Aperture as you might think, though there was some: levels adjustments, exposure/contrast/black point/vibrancy/saturation/definition all given nudges in one direction or another, but not to an unreasonable level, or even one worth mentioning.
