This week in our facebook photo group we are sharing pictures of pictures edited with apps, filters, and other special effects. It’s just a fun week when we all spend time experimenting and sharing. When looking for rain pictures for this challenge I came upon this image which looks more like after the rain (in the original), but sometimes rain is really hard to capture, so I don’t know. I added a rain overlay and now there is no question.
As a side note to this rain story, this week a new (to me) blogger created a pingback to her blog with all the Sunday Stills participants. Sometimes when people do that it annoys me a little bit but this time I happily read her rain story as it reminded me of one of my own.
When I was about 9-11 years old I too participated in a talent show. It was me and two of other girls and I choreographed a routine for the three of us set to the song Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head. We had clear umbrellas trimmed in three different colors. Mine was green and matched the ribbon laced in the bodice of my dress.
My mother said the only flaw in our presentation was that I had gum in my mouth and my chewing interfered with my lip syncing. I don’t really remember. I do remember after I went with my immediate family to my Aunt Joan’s house where several of my relatives had gathered, including my aunt and uncle from New York. I recreated my performance (alone) and was the hit of the living room!
