Precariously perched!

It rained here the whole day today: And i went absolutely crazy with my camera: shooting in color, black n white, sepia, tint: rain drops on car window, rear view mirror, puddles, leaves, flowers, shops...........i really went bonkers!!!! Here are some with raindrops precariously hanging there................. I dont think anything captures the "ephermerality" of a moment as beautifully as a raindrop! I absolutely love this work of Emily Dickinson that i leave behind here with the pics: A drop fell on the apple tree Another on the roof; A half a dozen kissed the eaves, And made the gables laugh. A few went out to help the brook, That went to help the sea. Myself conjectured, Were they pearls, What necklaces could be! The dust replaced in hoisted roads The birds jocoser sung; The sunshine threw his hat away, The orchards spangles hung. The breezes brought dejected And bathed them in the glee; The East put out a single flag, And signed the fete away. :)

What is the word for "at loss of words" ?

Shall write something later, when I find some :)

akhil, except for the second one: they r all out of focus, i guess i can see that even if u don't point it out to me out of sheer kindness :P
but i was so engrossed in just capturing them that at the end of 3 hrs that i spent outdoors today with camera i was exhausted and happy beyond words! guess, i really love an imperfect world! :)
