"Found Collage" is brand spanking new. (To be clear, it is not a collage; I just think it looks like one.) As I've noted here before when posting a new pic, I should probably wait a few days for it to "cool." I do often see things I want to change in a photo after a little time has passed, and the same is true for my poetry. But occasionally the urge to "put it out there" over-rides any sense I should wait.

Usually I'm disappointed when spiderwebs don't show in a shot. But this time their almost total disappearance works in favor of depth and layering (along with manipulating the focus, contrast, and colors).

I took a lot of rain drop shots yesterday since we so rarely have the opportunity here in sunny CA. Most didn't work out. But I think that has more to do with my moods. I've noted when I take pix from a place of "I should" rather than "I really have to get this pic!" they rarely have good results. Not to mention that the mix of sun/shadow and shiny/tiny rain drops is rather confounding for this low-tech photog. :-D (I dare you to say that last sentence several times fast ...)
