For a while, I didn't really pick up my camera. I didn't shoot, I didn't edit, I didn't blog. Now that I've decided I want to keep blogging, I find myself having a hard time putting my camera down.
One of my favorite subjects to shoot is a still life. It's not normally the type of thing I find myself gravitating towards but this is a special exception. It's a vase of flowers--some silk, some dried--on the windowsill in my mom's bathroom. That window always has the most glorious light and I find myself shooting the window and its flowers frequently. They're never the same twice.
I decided to put my nifty fifty on my camera and just take a few shots.
Once I had finished in the bathroom, I thought I would take advantage of the gorgeous sunlight and shoot a little bit around the neighborhood. As I walked out, I realized that it was raining. A beautiful golden hour sun shower... that's the making of a rainbow.
I saw a stain on the sidewalk and stopped to take a picture of my bag in the cloud. When I looked up, I saw a full rainbow spanning the sky.
I kept following the rainbow, trying to find a new perspective and make as many shots as I could before it faded away.
Eventually the sun went behind a cloud and it was back to watching it rain.
But oh, how lovely indirect sunlight can be!
I had forgotten how much I love this. I really did miss taking photos and I'm glad I'm back. After all, someone needs to appreciate beautiful (rainy) days in the neighborhood!
