CREATIVITY: Raindrops On The Iris

Updated: May 22, 2018

My favorite flower is the Iris and I love to take pictures (even though I very much am an amateur). So imagine my surprise when the rain let up and the sun slipped through the clouds to shine right on the Iris in my yard! I decided to run out and take a stab at getting a gorgeous shot.

And I sure did.

"One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats." Iris Murdoch

With the iPhone X, I turned my cell phone into a studio camera using Portrait mode and the Natural Light setting. The sun created the best lighting so Studio Light was definitely not needed. I love how clear the image is. So clear you can see the raindrops on each petal.

How appropriate the quote by Iris Murdoch is. Capturing this moment and feeling creative was a small treat that made me happy. I also learned that the primary significance of an iris is: faith, hope, wisdom, courage, and admiration. Also appropriate since these are traits that have come easier to me in my mid-life and practice of being positively prime.

What small treat did you experience this week? Feel free to connect and share it with me.
