It’s been raining the past three days and son says, “you can’t do anything outside in this weather”. I agree. We still have to trim the grass, empty the pond of rain water and clean the yard. And it does not help that PAGASA says the rain will stay for about a week. Okay by me, I say as long as it does not bring flash flood that always inconvenience commuters. Since typhoon Ondoy, I always have this fear of storms and typhoons and flood. You will never know that even if it’s only a habagat, it brings more rain than a typhoon. It is nice to see nature though after the rain, when the sun slowly breaks from slumber and shows its face. It is one of those times that I truly appreciate the fresh look of my garden plants and I can’t help but take a few shots of raindrops precariously clinging to the leaves of the Caladium in the corner of the garden. Oh and I have to harvest my Calamansi, some are turning yellow. The green ones are better than the ripe fruits.

Sometimes the simplest things are the best Nature can give. And seeing the beauty of raindrops is like allowing yourself to feel that life in all its angst is beautiful.
It’s a lonely planet. It rained hard a few minutes ago and I got crazy watching the raindrops creating puddles of water on the pavements. I used to love the steady patter, well, until three years ago. Nowadays, it gives me the shivers while remembering the harsh reality of a strong typhoon that could wipe out lives and properties in an instant. My son tells me that it would never happen again but every time it rains hard, I look out of the window and watch it fall thinking of a long-ago September morning when water reached my shoulder inside the house.
There is a certain kind of fascination watching raindrops though. It was just a week ago when I attempted to walk in the rain, savoring the sound it created on my small umbrella. Look where it got me, colds and sore throat. And I had this dream of catching the rain on my cam and see if I could create that perfect shot where I could clearly see the slant of raindrops. Another crazy idea, I guess but well, one could indulge a little and satisfy a curiosity long dreamed of.
I am just wondering why it came out like this, a sea of bubbles falling down from the sky. And I thought there must be something wrong with my camera so I tried taking a shot of my notes in front of my PC and it came out clear without all those dots and bubbles I had earlier. Crazy, isn’t it?
