Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid…contrasts

Today’s theme is “Liquid.”  We’ve been getting lots of that recently in the form of rain, rain, and more rain, although this shot of a flooded parking lot was taken some years ago.  I know some of you have seen it and a few have written a 100-word story about it when it was a prompt for Friday Fictioneers.  But it’s still one of my favorite photos and, I think, just right for today’s challenge.

In contrast, I offer a macro photo which has been the most popular post on my site in all these years and one I love as well.  Enjoy!

    A beautiful raindrop Janet! :o)

    Love the shopping cart, something so ordinary but you’ve made it fabulous.

    • When I got to the store and saw that cart all alone, I have to whip my phone out and capture it. It was something that really touched my heart and I’m so glad you enjoyed it as well. Thanks!


  3. Timeless beauty in both photos, Janet.

  4. GeorgieMoon says:

    That’s a lovely droplet photo. I’ve never taken one myself. Did you use a special,lens?

  5. Sandra says:

    Both are beautiful. I remember the top one as a Fictioneer prompt. Well done, Janet.

  6. Excellent choices for today. What wonderful contrasts. Love shopping cart what a story it tells isolated sad but presant.

    Very nice pics!!

  14. Dan Antion says:

    Both are wonderful, Janet, but that drop is amazing!

  15. JT Twissel says:

    The world in a dewdrop! Nicely down.

  16. Leya says:

    Perfect both – and I love that first one. Perfectly OK to see it more than once.

  17. You certainly are able to showcase your exceptional photography skills with these two shots. 🙂

  18. MarkD60 says:

    The top picture, with the shopping cart, is very cool. Poor shopping cart! The second one, reminds me of a plant we have on our porch, like a cactus. but when it rains, every leaflet holds a drop of water in its center like a jewel!

  19. Both are apt for the challenge. I remember the first, and the second is just as intriguing. Well done.

    Liquid: beautiful vastness, and the reflection and some depth..
    Macro: I just love it! 🙂

    Great shots – I particularly like the first one.

  25. Anita says:

    Beautiful pictures, both. I can’t seem to decide which one I like better – they each evoke different feelings and thoughts in me. 🙂

  26. myplaidheart says:

    Really cool shots!

  27. Su Leslie says:

    The second shot is stunning Janet, but the first is really poignant and rather sad. Both great for the theme.

  28. galeweithers says:

    Nice! Can understand why your macro photo is so well loved 🙂

  30. Nice choices, I like that both feature reflections.

  31. Both are wonderful images! I love the reflection of the shopping cart, and the refracted image of the tress in the drop on the flower. Wonderful work Janet!

  32. MythRider says:

    I really like how you captured the water drop. It holds its own picture while everything else is out of focus.

  33. Both your photos are so fitting for the theme and I love them both for different reasons. The shopping trolley with its reflection made me think of loneliness whilst the macro water drop was just beautiful.
