Having spent a great deal of time observing water drops up close and personal, I am firmly convinced that water drops differ depending on their source. Rain forms drops that have a different appearance than drops from a hose. Water drops from an irrigation sprinkler have their own special geometry.

Since the rainy season is over for the year, organic drops are not a possibility for me until the autumn rains begin in December or so.

These drops were created by our irrigation system, and I photographed them today in the early morning sun with my first cup of coffee, Sunday Times and breakfast waiting inside, kids crawling over me, and everyone getting totally soaked!
