It was very windy and raining when I took this in a pretty English village. Like, flip-my-umbrella-inside-out windy. Yet this daffodil is in focus and you can even see the raindrops.

Murals usually photograph well anyhow, which is all the more reason to capture this one in Berlin's East Side Gallery.
