Our summer has been one of rain, heat, and humidity.  This past week I was on my way to the YMCA for yoga class.  As luck would have it, it started to rain, or more correctly, it started to pour.  The rain came down in buckets.  I arrived at the Y, parked my car, and it was still pouring so I decided to sit it out for a while and wait.  I sat in my car looking out through the windshield, across the street, to the tree on the other side.  Granted, the tree wasn’t anything spectacular, but as I changed my focus from the tree to the windshield I saw something beautiful and fluid.  As the rain was pouring down the glass, there was a gorgeous effect on the subjects across the street.  They too became fluid and took on a “watercolor” effect.  I pulled out my camera and spent the next three minutes photographing this watery scene until the rain stopped, the sun came out, and I walked into my yoga class without getting wet.
