Foto Finish - The Way I See It

The Life in Pieces crew gets a three day weekend this week.  A three day weekend where we don't have to be out the door at way to early in the morning or be anywhere but home.  So this morning I can drink a couple cups of coffee while I write, read and comment.  At some point laundry must be started, but I can put that off for a little bit, at least until I figure out what to post for this week's Foto Finish.  

The optional theme this week is "The Way I See It".  Isn't every photograph taken a reflection of how the photographer sees it?  The choice of subject matter, focus, and framing are all up to the person pushing that little button on top of the camera.  The harder part of photography is getting each viewer to see the same thing the photographer did.  I learned a long time ago that what I say is not necessarily what the person listening hears.  Isn't it the same way with a looking at an image?   Each person interprets a photograph based on their view of the world.  So even though the image may be what I see, there is no guarantee that the viewer will see the same thing.  

This is what I saw looking out my dining room window last September.

What do you see?

I see rain on the roses but I'm going to pretend it's April showers and the first buds of spring.

That's beautiful, I like the way some of the rain drops pick up the pink from the flowers. It almost looks like the colors are running out of the flower.
