The Beauty of Rain Droplets: Toronto Photography

I’ve done quite a few macro rain droplet photos (see previous rainy day photography herehereherehere and here), and I love, and am quite fascinated by how similar, yet different and unique the photos are to each other. Droplets form differently. The light outside is different. I’m sure there will be more to come…:-)

The (Many) Skies Today: Toronto Photography

Combined a large number of “The Sky Today” photos together in Photoshop to create this ‘sky today’ photo:

Noticed birds flying around at dusk the other night, captured a few shots:

Wondering what’s up with all the photos:
