The camera’s eye – part 2

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:06pm

 

I took these pictures the other day, around the time I posted part 1 of this duo.  Basically I got a bit giddy because the camera was not producing replicas of the scenes in front of me, as my eye saw them (I should have said ‘eyes’ not ‘eye’ there - I’m not of cyclopic descent).

So all these pictures are of the rain.  I used to adore the rain, I’d go outside if it began to shower because I loved the feel of light rain on my skin, or the sound of heavy rain splashing grandly off my waterproof jacket.  I don’t do that now, but I still get a little bit fascinated and you are quite likely to see me edging closer to the window should the heavens open.

Picture: Tried to take a picture of the rain but it just looks like drops on the window.

Picture: There was a lovely feathery downpour happening but, as you can see, this first picture didn’t show that up at all.

Picture: Exactly the same conditions, but zooming in a bit – my cam only zooms 3x max – at least showed up that it was in fact raining.

Picture: On maximum zoom the raindrops look like shards falling from the sky.  Nothing like the dew drop patter in front of me.  It was delicate and I wish my camera could have represented it as it was.  The rain shards are interesting in their own way, but different.
