First - thank you all so much for all your comments on my Stoneburg service station (yesterday's potd). I was overjoyed to hear all of what you had to say, and that everyone agreed that it was such a unique place. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was uplifted to hear the comments on a day that was personally very sad for me. My favorite cousin passed away yesterday and my heart is heavy. He was the star of our family and his infectious laugh and kind heart was what all of us will remember about him forever. The Daily Community and comments yesterday helped keep me propped up and steady enough to make it through the day at work without weeping.
So this shot is dedicated to my cousin Max, thank you Billy Max for all the beauty that you brought into my life, all the laughs and all the fun.
I uploaded this shot several weeks ago, so the commentary that follows is what I wrote at the time I uploaded the photo. Little did I know then that I would lose one so close to me. But it seems that this is a perfect shot for my cousin and the remembrance of him and his life - so I decided to keep this post in his honor.
So with that dedication, I offer you my first serious attempt at taking reflection shots in rain drops, and I think it turned out pretty well. This is a macro shot of one of the branches on our redbud tree in the back yard right after a recent rain. The reflection in the raindrop is of the other branches of the tree and some of the redbud blossoms on them, and the grass in our backyard.
Let me know what you think.
