It's Raining

Explored #183 (8/13/2013, but no longer in the day's top 500). Thanks!

 

Since I didn't want to brave the weather last August 10, my 366 Snaps shots were taken inside the house.

 

Several of 'em were of the rain on various windows....

Actually, I had an idea for a daily photo: I'd shoot a pic of Joan's CD collection. This turned out to be surprisingly difficult, as poor light and the small room worked against me. The bigger problem was the minimum focus distance for the lens, which forced me to lean against the far wall of the room. The smaller problem was that exposures were in the quarter-second range.

 

I worked at improving the light. I got serious about steadying the camera. I tried several ways to frame the picture. I shot several dozen photographs. Eventually I made a capture I was willing to share.

This photograph is an outtake from my 2012 photo-a-day project, 366 Snaps.

 

Number of project photos taken: 87 [you doubted that "dozens"?]

Title of "roll:" Playback

Other photos taken on 8/10/2012: A grey day, but by noon the rain had stopped. All afternoon I was shooting pix of birds at feeders, using both Nikons. I'm pretty sure we never saw any sunshine...
