This image is not too interesting other than the story behind it.

I was out one fall (no pun intended) doing strobist stuff, searching for interesting imagery. I had the light set up a couple of meters camera right, a single Speedlight shooting into an umbrella, when I learned once again that using an umbrella light-modifier outdoors is a bad idea, as with a small wind the stand toppled over, landing it flash-down into a ditch. With water, of course.

So I aborted the photoing and headed indoors, threw the flash in a bag with rice and waited. A week later I took it out and loaded up some batteries, and found it in working order!

Long story short: rice is not only for food.
