Day 53: The smell of rain

“Day 53: Make something in which the sense of smell is the essential component.”

Today should have been a day of baking cookies or making some other delectably delicious dessert.

But a quick roadtrip to Fredvegas took baking out of the picture.

It is impossible to capture smell in a photograph or a video… you can capture people’s reactions to smells, but that isn’t the same thing.

If you could have been with me when I took the photograph, you would have smelled the clean scent of rain in the air. The air smelled like damp earth and the promise of the spring to come. I wish there was a way to bottle that smell.
