It’s funny. When it starts raining, really raining, people’s natural reaction is to run for cover. A few months ago, I was at the New York Botanical Garden roaming the Rose Garden, taking in the beautiful blooms and fragrances. Suddenly, it started to rain…really rain. I rushed to get my umbrella out. By the time I got it up, I looked around to see that the entire Rose garden was empty and all the flowers were getting covered with tiny droplets of water. It was beautiful. I probably looked a little crazy, but with one hand I held my umbrella and with the other I started to snap away. With no one crowding me and nature adding little droplets of sparkle, I couldn’t help it. My efforts were well worth it though, because I came away with some pretty nifty pictures.
