An unusual sight in Phoenix…

I don’t get a chance to photograph raindrops very often and I knew I needed to have my 3/52 done by tomorrow so last night, in a storm, I ventured way out to my front porch.

They look so luscious…the berries and the drops.

Late tonight/early tomorrow morning, a really bad storm is supposed to hit…the one that just did a bunch of damage in California. I pretty much hate storms but know we need the water. It’s predicted to rain continuously for the next few days.

Wish I could just stay home throughout it all but I have to go to work. At least Tony isn’t traveling right now. So, I made a couple more beds out in the covered carport and alcove for the outdoor kitties so they all have a place to sleep under a roof and I’ll have to hope they stay safe and close by.

Now I just have to decide how to put Week 3 of my 52 Project together…do a diptych, triptych, quadtych, whatever, or just use one photo.

In yesterday’s photojojo newsletter, they mentioned Shape Collage, a free download that automatically arranges your selected photos into different-shaped collages. The free version is limited but still pretty cool and the paid version is only $25 and offers a lot more features (I just used the free version). Here’s a collage of my photos from last night:

You can have hours of fun with this program!

Updated: This is what I decided for my 3/52, actually called a “pentaptych.”

  1. Nice job catching those rain drops! They look so nice on the bright berries. I’ve been watching that storm that’s headed your way. Wish I could be there to see the water run in the washes again.

  2. candace your drop photos are so nice…unusual weather for you always can bring a photo op . Thanks for the the shape collage link, it looks fun. I like your new look here

  3. Terrific photos in the rain! VERY GOOD! I’m glad you got them and I appreciated your last post and what you said too!

  4. Gorgeous shots, I love how you captured the water dripping from the berries. Thanks for the info on Shape Collage, think I’ll try it!

  5. They all are fine, colorful shots with excellent detail showing the droplets.
    The five-picture result looks very good. I hadn’t heard of this program before. Nice post.

    • The five-picture one actually was not made with Shape Collage but with a program that came on my Mac called Comic Life. I never use it except for these templates where you can plug photos in easily.

  6. Wow, BEAUTIFUL photos. Those are great!!

  7. A pentaptych! Well, that’s a new one for me, but it looks amazing! Glad you’re getting a little rain. 🙂

  8. So crisp and clear…and the reds…wow.
    I like how you did all the creative collage.

    I’ll send you some rain and snow from Montana…

  9. Besides being treated to a sensory treat with your photos, you also provide links to fun programs to try on our own… kudos!

  10. Love your pentaptych (that’s a new word for me!) – great captures of the berries and raindrops. Well done, Candace!
