A snail trying not to get stepped on in Sunnyvale, a photo by nicolecwong on Flickr.
Many of my favorite photos take advantage of images that surface after storms. I love snapping pictures of watery reflections — like upside-down skyscrapers in still puddles or bridges that look wobbly in rippling water — to show the world from a different perspective.
While most people go out in the rain holding an umbrella, I go out in the rain holding a camera.
I’ll even squat on the wet pavement to capture tiny reflections — like this snail’s tentacle. It’s funny seeing the world from the perspective of the snail, as we both try to go about our business yet not to get stepped on by workers dashing down the sidewalk to catch their shuttle bus home.
love it…. reminds me of “Microcosmos”
thanks, Ron! will have to check out that documentary!
