Header Challenge: Falling

This is what the sky looks like when rain is falling in the distance.


From August 14, 2011

When the sky looks like this, go inside and wait awhile before heading out unless you want to put yourself and your clothing through the rinse and spin cycles one more time.

And your camera.  My trusty Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS that fits so neatly in my pocket took some lovely shots before Adella and I faced a near drowning on Sunday after supper.  On the race home, Della lost a flip-flop and hop-skipped her way home between lightning bolts.  It was all very dramatic.  Still, we survived, and there's no sense dwelling on the past.  In the photo above, you can see rain on my lens as well as the white rain sheeting in the background.

Did I mention my Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS is an awesome little machine?  After I documented our Survival of the Deluge, I wiped it off and put it near a warm light and gave it a day or two and, lo, it came back to life.  The little camera is indestructible.  It has put up with no end of sand and grime and water and salt and then tolerated my powering it up and down and smacking it on the palm of my hand to make it go again.  Through these summer-long rigors, I charged the battery exactly once--and only to be careful, not because it showed any signs of wearing down.  Before its two days in intensive care, it took this picture of me and my girl, giddy with delight that we weren't drowned or electrocuted, under my parents' porch.  Canon, you rock.

  1. Very clever interpretation of the header challenge. Striking photos. It looks like you girls had too much fun in the rain. It is "that" time of year around here. I think all the schools are back in session. Good luck.

  2. I like your dramatic picture of the storm at sea. I'm glad you got such a great camera, but try to limit its time in downpours.

  4. Such dramatic captures! And, oh yes, I do love my Canon, too! I love your header shots, particularly the last one with the light reflected on the water! Other worldly it is!

  10. Canon cameras are the best definitely (but then I'm biased). It does look a wonderful place to be despite the weather.
