Romance of Mulberry

I never waited for my mulberry to turn into deep black, somehow it tasted like a strawberry, sourly sweet. Then I came back to the plant again with an umbrella and my camera, for the dripping raindrops this time. I would like to freeze them in the air.

This is a game between technology and gravity, with some disruptions from the rain.

I got a gifted reflection, I think so. A ladybird was colored onto the curve surface. That was good enough; she should have said that.

When I turned to her, she left me behind. It must be very romantic to chase after her, especially in the rain, and to share an umbrella with her. But it was not so practical to do so.

All these were played on a small mulberry plant, and in my little garden.

rainfield, what an amazing photograph. Did you get absolutely soaked capturing this picture. How could you hold an umbrella and shoot it at the same time? You are so multitalented or you haven't shared with us that you have several hands!

I wish I can have extra hands for the camera.
In fact, the gravity never pre-alert me on when the water droplets would fall. I saw nothing in my capture for most of the time.

I've seen many raindrops shots but yours are among the best. I love that almost dropping hanging by the thin water line, just great.

Wonderful pictures of the raindrop. I love looking at things like this. I have always been too impatient to take pictures of them myself. And just thinking of mulberries brings back good memories of mulberry trees I have always loved.
