Rainbow right

Another day with an unexpected little discovery. These things keep life interesting. When you show up at a botanic garden you expect flowers to be your main color source. On this day the fountain won. This rainbow stretched through the misty spray maybe 100 yards outward from the fountain’s base. I’d guess the water shoots 50-60 feet in the air. I have no idea if this rainbow is a regular occurrence. It would seem to me that the light and wind would have to be just right. I’ll guess you can see it for a short stretch of time on most days.

Park Ridge night

This was a special night where you forget almost everything that’s happening except the event, and it’s not until you lay down to sleep that you reconsider if everything that did happen was real. This photo acted as my pinch-me moment that night. It was such a real moment, that I even remember all these months later that I took it with a 50 prime lens, because I was too tired to switch to something more versatile.

I kept looking out the window at this scene. It was like it reminded me that life was going on as normal in most cases. Everything was scattered about other than this little row of cars leading up to the horizon line. They were order against all else, but they were also simple and routine. I decided on blurring everything but the cars. Have you ever noticed that when you stare intently at something it becomes the only thing in actual focus? Everything else kind of melts together.
