Serendipity Rules

Crassula argentea

It rained overnight, and after I dropped the boys off at the school bus stop the weather turned perfect for water drops: calm, still, with bright but diffuse lighting. I photographed this flower on a Jade Plant (Crassula argentea) along the street near our house—it almost looks like it was lit in a studio on black seamless with softboxes. No way. This is impromptu street lighting—sometimes I like to think of it as my water drop studio.

A neighbor saw me, and called out, “I had no idea you relied on serendipity. I thought you used an eye dropper to make your water drops.”

Serendipidty rules. That, and my 200mm macro telephoto lens.
