This is a truly beautiful piece. The rain and the colours of the blurred background makes it look sad and depressing, as if the days spent are sorrowful but then among all the rain drops that look like tears there are these beautiful coloured flowers which then brightens up the image and makes it look as if there is hope among all that sorrow.. as if better days are ahead and no matter how small one may be, they will never be beaten down by the hard rain because even the smallest of things have so much hope, faith and love inside of them.
Truly an amazing and inspirational image.
