Falling Water for Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

Do you ever have trouble deciding what photo you want to post on any given day? Tonight I had that problem.  I wandered around in the yard for a bit looking at the flowers and the birds and the frogs in the pond.  Nothing really turned my crank.    I spotted the waterbarrel that used to be our only water feature.  My husband had fish in it and some aquatic plants.  It served its purpose until we finally decided to build a pond.   Now the poor barrel is falling apart.  If it wasn't for the liner on the inside it would not hold water at all.   We have an old fashioned hand pump that we circulate water through from a circulating pump in the bottom of the barrel.   To get to the point I decided to take a photo of the water dripping into the barrel.   It seemed interesting to me.   I hope you think so too.

Very good shot. I also like taking photos of water (fountains for instance).

Great shot. I also have a hard time finding a good photo shot. I think I have photographed everyting around the outside of my home and neighborhood.

Water certainly is an interesting subject to photo - I can't even venture outside just now - yesterday it was too windy to photograph anything and today - its thunderstorms. Thanks for the inspiration.

It's a neat shot, Valerie. Flowing water is never still except in photos. :)
