The rain had ceased and the raindrops on the window pane were backlit by the late afternoon sun. I captured the image and transferred it to the computer. On the screen the image became something quite different. I saw not raindrops but a mass of faceless people gathered together for an outdoor meeting – perhaps a peace rally or something similar. It is a quiet gathering. (You may find it helpful to half close your eyes!)
Out of curiosity, I reversed the colours and was intrigued to note how the mood had changed. It now became more noisy and boisterous; an angry scene, more aggressive – perhaps a political protest or passionate supporters at a major sports event..

you get top scores for imagination! you’re right, there are faces in those raindrops, and the negative image makes them a bit more …. threatening?!
You’re very kind Lisa. Thank you.
An excellent post! I agree with your interpretation. A marked contrast.
I’m pleased you like it Elena. Many thanks.
Fascinating to see how the mood changes with the colour ….
But it does, doesn’t it?
