Purple rain

Its been a dry month in Ottawa. I think it hasn’t rained since early May. So I’ve taken to lightly watering the grass and plants. No too much, since the city decided it wanted more revenue from water so jacked the rates by 6%.

But I digress. I was watering the flowers and such and saw the way the droplets appeared on the flowers. I grabbed my Fuji X-T1 and 60mm macro and made some pictures. This is one of those.

My friend suggested the title “Purple Rain”. Somewhat fitting since the death of Prince. I was never  a big fan of his (just his style doesn’t totally jive with mine), but I respected him as an artist and musician. He could really wail on the guitar.
