I have, for years, wanted to take a pictures of drops of water dangling off of a flower or leaf. Today, I only had to go to school for a half day. It was pouring down rain (which I hate to drive in!) but I made it home fine and everything. I got into the driveway, turned off the car and was jamming to Misery Business by Paramore while the rain patted on my windshield. Then, I really liked the way the drops looked on the windshield, so I ran into the house.
I found Romeo.
Then I grabbed Wal-Mart bag, just in case I decided to get a little daring, wrapped up my camera and poked a hole for the lens, and went on a photo hunt.
First stop: Windshield.

Please note: I love the lighting in this picture.

And you guys, it was all worth it.
