In Week 2 I wrote about experimenting taking photographs through windows and referred to the work of Todd Hido and Tom Wood

On the last day of my time in Skye, as it was raining, I tried the technique first through my car windows, and then through a window in the house.  It was more difficult than I thought.  I decided to use my iPhone as it was easier to handle in a confined space.  The amount of raindrops on the windscreen seemed to be a critical factor in the level of abstraction of the final outcome.  I preferred more water rather than less, as seeing the landscape in the rain is my experience of the essence of Skye – so it is about revealing the essence through the rain spattered window.  I need to do a lot more experimenting when I return to Skye however, I can try this out wherever I am so will keep working at.  Here are a few of the images I shot today:

I will need to wait for a northerly wind in order to get more rain on the patio window – see Image 5!
