A Few of my Favorite Things

This photograph compiles three of my favorite tools to use in photography.

                        1.  Rain drops (create interest and mood to any photograph)  
                           2.  Reflection (captured the clouds in the sky perfectly)
                               3.  A Part of a Whole (can you tell what this is?)

This is something I love to do.  I know it is not everyone's cup of tea, and that is okay... but I love making the viewer stop... even for a few seconds... to evaluate the photograph, to look at the details, to figure out the subject.  

What are some of your favorite tools to use in photography?

Capturing the Moment,



  1. Wonderful image! Hood of a car?
    Agree! I think my favorite tool to peak viewers' interest in an image is the Lensbaby.

    1. Yes Penny! It is the hood of a vintage car from an auto show. I've never used a Lensbaby before, but it looks really fun!
