On Sunday afternoon, it rained. Hard.
After the rain passed, I decided to grab my macro lens to take a few shots -- because you know how I loves me some water shots. After I shot a couple of one of the trees in our back yard (above), Marcus directed my attention to how the raindrops were clinging to this tiny little potted plant I brought home and left on our patio a couple of months ago.
Needless to say, I was enthralled. So I took a couple more.
When I pulled the images up on my computer, I was really pleased to discover that there was very little processing needed to make them look decent. So I was having a great time, just quickly sharpening them a bit here, upping the contrast there ...
... and then I pulled up this picture:
DUDE. TELL ME YOU SEE THE GIRL IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT RAINDROP.
You see her, right? I didn't process this image at all, for fear she would go away. But you see her, right? And she's clearly not my reflection. And I was alone when I took the shot (Marcus had gone inside by this point), so she's not anyone else's reflection, either.
Marcus sees her, and he's as creeped out as I am. Alex and her best friend saw her, and excitedly pronounced that I had captured an image of a fairy.
Yeah. A fairy. Okay, that's what she is.
Let's go with that.
Comment of the day: "Um, she looks a little pissed off. (kind of how I look when someone snaps my pic unawares). And if that's the case.. maybe you should give the camera a break for a day or two. Just sayin. Fairy revenge must be a bitch." ~ kaela
