oh, lotus, dearest lotus! you did it! and only you could have done it so beautifully... I don't know how to thank you, I am speechless. and so grateful. you know, your blog was the first one I discovered after I began to read blogs (I hadn't even started mine back then) and I still can't believe how lucky I was to find you.

we finally had our first real rain.

i liked the perspective before i put the camera down, so i want to figure out a way to hold it at that level other than my holding it.

in case anyone wonders, once i set the camera down, the only thing i did was turn it once. all sounds, shifts in lighting, etc were what was happening. i was perfectly still. you can hear the rain on the pond, on the big canvas umbrella i was standing under, etc.

thanks, roxy.
