Purple Rain

Sometimes my favorite part of a photo is what happens behind the camera.

We had just arrived home from somewhere or other. We were between rainstorms and the sun was shining brightly on the wet everything. We walked into the door and Nico commented, "Mom, the light is really nice out there and the raindrops are big on the flowers. Do you want to take some pictures?"

I guess I think out loud about this stuff often enough that it's permeated into his train of thought and put him on the lookout. I love it.

Here's what he inspired:

This one is called "Purple Rain."  Get it?
Update: This photo was entered and featured for the P52/"Weather" challenge. Here's the link to see it amongst the other photos that were chosen.

And, so the pink shrubs wouldn't feel unappreciated...
