‘It isn’t raining rain, you know … ‘

 

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..

  1. 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?!

  2. An excellent post! I agree with your interpretation. A marked contrast.

  3. Fascinating to see how the mood changes with the colour ….
