Day 14 of my “14 Days of Photos with Circles” has finally arrived and what to do? Obviously there will have to be a bonus photo, but the primary photo … the Day 14 photo itself ought to be something special. If only I were up to the task. Alas, I cannot claim that I am. Fortunately, Mother Nature intervened at an opportune moment and presented me with the picture that you now see. Perhaps it is just a silly thing, but I liked it and hope you will as well.
The photo is of a puddle, actually the kind of puddle that is rather hard to love because it is an in your way puddle. It is puddle that must be gotten through since there is no way around it. This particular puddle was on a concrete surface. Since of course it was a puddle and not a pond it did not have the depth to absorb much of the pounding rain it was getting during the heavy storm that I was hoping would end quickly so I could be on my way. Fortunately, I noticed that the very lack of depth of this inconvenient puddle, combined with a setting that made for some unusual lighting and reflections, made it an interesting object to observe and to photograph. Of course the serendipity that had presented me with a puddle where a passing downpour gave me an assembly of circles to photograph did not escape me either. I call this photo “Circlepalooza” and I hope you enjoy it.
