Making a Splash

When it rained yesterday my daughter ran out and had a gala time getting wet. I stayed at the door and clicked pictures of the water drops making a splash!

I first tried the kit lens but I was not happy with the close up of the water drops I was getting. Then I tried the 75-300 mm lens with continuous shooting. The lens was slow at the range I was trying. Let us see if I get another opportunity to experiment more with rain drops next weekend. The neighbor’s blue wall gives me a good background too!

This was the biggest splash I could capture! I actually love rains as long as I am not stuck in a traffic jam.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
