This image is one from a series called RAINDROPS, which I began two years ago. It depicts patterns of raindrops collected on a car windshield, each reflecting a palm tree on the street ahead.

My photographic work aims to showcase the unseen and often hidden landscape inherent within an ordinary space, based not solely on what one sees, but how one sees it.
