What’s Life Like From The Inside? #SundayStills #photography

I’m delighted to be hosting the Sunday Stills photography challenge again while host Terri Webster Schrandt continues her blogging break.

This week’s theme: Inside.

When I took this photo a few weeks ago, I wondered if there would be any signs of life from the inside of a raindrop.

Life inside a raindrop

Look closely. What do you see?

I was surprised by what I saw. Small air bubbles inside each one. Does that mean there are signs of life inside every raindrop?

There were no signs of life inside this restaurant, but that doesn’t mean that life doesn’t exist inside empty places, does it? Who knows what kinds of life continues inside places that are empty of human life.

Are there any signs of life from the inside?

Yet inside some objects, there can be a whole lot going on without any signs of movement.

And you don’t always need to be inside to be inside something. Can you spot the circle of life and the people inside it on this photo?

For some, the best time to be inside is when it’s time for a nap.

One of Austin’s favourite places is being inside his bed.

  1. Fun post and theme, Hugh! I love the variety of perspectives, although I am tired of living inside all these days. Lots of smoke up here in Spokane due to the wildfires in Oregon and California. I love that perspectives of the snow globe, very cool. I know there is something inside those drops! Many thanks for hosting SS and I am really looking forward to being back to the blogosphere on Sunday.

    1. Hi Terri, it was a blast hosting SundayStills again. I enjoyed it very much.

      I hope the wildfires and smoke soon stop and that you’ll get some wet weather.

      I’m looking forward to hearing all about what you did over your blogging break.

      Welcome back.

  2. Great challenge, Hugh. Inside opens up a lot of possibilities. Right now we have to stay inside because of all the smoke. Your water picture is fabulous. Where is that lovely castle? And of course, your sweet baby.

    1. Didn’t we talk about water droplets in last week’s challenge, Marsha? It was the inspiration for me to check out if there were signs of life inside raindrops. And I see that Terri’s theme for a couple of weeks is water droplets.

      The castle is Corfe Castle. It can be found in the county of Dorset in southern England. I enjoyed our visit there. History fascinates me.

      1. You did talk about water droplets, Hugh. I loved that picture. Water droplets photograph so beautifully. Mom and I came to England many, many years ago. We stayed three weeks in London as our base, then traveled to Stratford-on Avon, Bath, and Canterbury that I remember. We traveled with high school English teachers so our primary goal was to go to plays. I think we saw almost 21 plays in 3 weeks. It was glorious. We also visited classrooms for three days and had a lecture about English education for three days. All in all a fabulous trip.

        1. Wow! That’s a lot of plays in three weeks, Marsha. When I lived and worked in London, I used to go to the theatre often. These days not so much, although I always enjoy the visits. And I’ve just heard that some theatres will be reopening in November with social distancing measures in place. I’m so pleased you had a great trip across the pond. Hopefully, one day, you’ll be able to make the return trip.

    1. I was going to include a photo of a top of a decorated Christmas cake, Graham. However, I thought people might be a little mad with me with posting too many festive photos when it’s only September. I’ll save that one for another challenge nearer December.

      Don’t know why, but your comment went straight to my WordPress Spam folder. Luckily, I check that folder at least twice a day.

      Thank you for joining me for Sunday Stills again.

  4. Hi Hugh, I like the circle of life photo. That’s a beautiful location. But I have to say my favorite photo is Austin. He is such a little cutie.

    1. He, he. He gets told that a lot, Lea. Sometimes, when I take him out for a walk, it can take hours to get back because everyone we pass wants to speak to him. No wonder he’s tired when we get back home.

    1. I’d never looked at raindrops so closely before, Cathy. Seeing those tiny air bubbles inside most of them was quite a shock.

      Austin’s bed is one of his favourite places to be inside. He’s always happy when he’s in bed and ready for a nap.

      1. It’s amazing the things that can be noticed by looking closely.

        Austin sounds very like Finn. I think most dogs have a bit of couch potato in them 😉
