Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #30: Unexpected

This is my submission for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #30: Unexpected. Unexpected what? “It’s up to you,” Ann-Christine says.

What can you do to sweaty windows? Most of the days, I just ignore them. Once in a while, I would dry them with a towel. I didn’t like sweaty windows and had never taken a second look at them. However, yesterday morning, unexpectedly, I saw beauty in those water droplets.

Since I already got the camera in my hands, I might as well shoot another one.

Wait a second, there is something in those water droplets…

Our maple tree! Let me take a closer look…

So cool! I started running around from one window to next, clicking like crazy. I even found some diamonds!

And this morning… it begins to look like Christmas…

Thank you, Ann-Christine, for a fun challenge.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
