We woke up to rain. Pouring down rain. Don't get me wrong...we needed rain it's just that I had planned to work in the yard all day today.
"I should never put off til tomorrow, etc" and again "make hay while the sun is shining" and yet another nugget of wisdom "don't count your chickens until your eggs hatch"---oh, well.
It is suppose to rain for all of today and tomorrow. So I have a morning to catch up on blog reading and to work in the house. Which one of those sounds like more fun?
If I really get ambitious I suppose I could go to Hobby Lobby and lust after something on Sale! That doesn't sound very good, does it? Okay, how does this sound? I could go to Hobby Lobby and see what's on Sale.
I just thought of something fun I can do! I'm going to go stand on the porch and see if I can catch raindrops with my new camera. I don't mean use my camera to catch raindrops but use my camera to capture images of raindrops...you understand, right? I don't need to further explain do I? Didn't think so. Anyhooo! If it works you'll see it here...
Okay. That was harder than I thought it would be. I don't think I caught one drop actually falling and now my batteries need replacing. So what's the secret? I suppose I'm going to have to look this up ...oh boy! I love projects!!! This one names itself doesn't it? Project Raindrop. Perfect. Now I have something to do.
You'll have to click on this one to even see the raindrops on the porch screen. I'm serious if you don't click on this one all you see is a blurry backyard. So click already! Failure #1
Now this one isn't bad of the wood grain but I was waiting for a drop to fall...everytime one did...I somehow missed it. I have about 10 of this exact photo. Failure #2
Next I tried to catch one falling from the iron fret work. I was fretting but it didn't work! Click on picture to see drops forming (or that could be my imagination) but nothing falling. Failure # 3!
My final efforts cause my batteries are low. I waited and waited for this drop to drop and just when I gave up...plomp...down it came!
This is nice cause the drop is just about to let go and the cobweb is interesting. Oh well, as I said, now I have a project "How to capture an image of a rain droplet falling".
Okay, that's all for now my little dewdrops! I'm off to research raindrops!
