Drops of Purple


I keep playing with water droplet experiments, and I think I’m getting better.  I still haven’t quite captured the image that’s in my mind’s eye, but this one comes the closest.  This is one of Squirt’s first-of-fall pansies, photographed through water droplets scattered on my porch glass-top table.  I dragged a lamp out on the porch on a very overcast morning to improve the lighting conditions.  I also tried a piece of aluminum foil behind the flower.  It was far enough away from the flower to through it out of focus, but it added light with its reflection.  I like how it gives a silvery cast to the image tones, which contrast nicely with the purples of the flower.
