Dear Folks!

Day before yesterday, it was raining and obviously I wasn't happy to have the feeling that hopefully this won't continue on weekend too. Luckily, on yesterday, there was blue sky spreading its glory everywhere.

I looked outside through my window where I found this single and the last drop. The sun was strong and the sky was purely blue, and this scenario motivated me to take this macro capture of the drop reflecting my neighbor house. This was the last drop which was left behind by the evening rain, survived the long night, even then it was full of shine and gave me a nearly perfect reflection within itself. I was happy to have this moment in the morning time.
Therefore, I titled this picture as "The Drop of Hope".

Hope you like the mood and happiness in this work.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend to your fullest!
