We had one hellacious rain/thunderstorm earlier today. All the booming was scaring my poor dog, I’m glad I found Richard’s Organics Pet Calm…I gave him a dropper full and he finally calmed down and fell asleep. I wasn’t sure how long the storm would last, or if I’d get to go out and take pictures.

Finally, after 11:30 or so it let up and I went outside with my camera to take some photos. I was now a happy camper. After taking some photos of the pink begonia’s with water drops, I found this cluster of buds. I took a couple of photos of them and did 2 double exposures, 1 with a blurred green background and the other with a blurred pink background. After taking photos in my front yard, and talking to my next door neighbor and petting her dog, I then took photos of the wet flowers in her yard, after getting her permission.

It took a long time to think of a clever title for this photo, but when I realized there were 2 full buds showing, and that it was a double exposure…well, that’s a double double in my book. 😉
