Looking at the world drop by drop
Water drops, they sing.
They tell a story wrapped in a bubble.
They look at the world upside down.
Inside of every drop is a whole world, full of its own colours and life.
It is great fun to keep looking at these hanging worlds, imagining what it would be to get inside! And as you keep on looking, slowly but surely, the world slowly slips and detaches itself to fall down freely. Millions of worlds are hanging out there inviting us to be a part of them.
Their beauty is short lived but the appreciation is long.
The above photograph , rain drop on a white Hibiscus petal was clicked with Canon EOS7D camera.
Shooting mode – Manual, Focal length – 125mm, ISO 500, Shutter 1/125, Aperture f/20, Macro was obtained by using a Canon 21mm extension tube.
Every time I look at drops with reflections, I’m reminded of an old song says;
“the world is such a cheerful place when viewed from upside down
It makes a rise of every fall, a smile of every frown”
A note for photographers :
Photographing water drops with beautiful reflections inside is every photographer’s dream.
In the rainy season, after a few heavy showers have passed, all the dust is washed away.
The drops from the subsequent rainfalls are beautiful, clear and vibrant.
