Day 79 – March 19, 2012

It doesn’t rain too much out here in the desert.  In fact, I’m pretty sure this is the first time it’s rained here this year.  Last night we even got a little bit of slushy/hail type stuff.  The sun is shining now, but at 6:30 this morning a few little raindrops were falling and hitting my window.  It’s so rare that it rains I just had to use a photograph of the rain for my daily picture. 

Day 47 – February 16, 2012

Since I took 2/3 of this picture today and did all the editing today, I decided this should count for my daily picture. I took the background picture last summer with this final version in mind. I took pictures of the raindrops and the umbrella today and finally put it all together. I had this idea of creating a fantasy/surreal/cartoon-like world last summer, but after I took all the pictures for it, I never actually finished it. Well today I used cardboard and Photoshop to begin the process of finishing the idea I had last summer. When these crazy ideas pop in my head, I always like to follow through with them, just to see how they turn out. I like how this one turned out.
