Yesterday I took a photo of raindrops and posted it to Instagram. I used “Raindrops on the window pane” as the description.
Then I started to think: Why did I use the definite article here?
When I said the phrase in my mind with the indefinite article, “Raindrops on a window pane”, it didn't sound right. However, logically, there should be the indefinite article: the reader or the listener doesn't know about this window pane, it's the first time it's mentioned. On the other hand, for me, it's this particular window pane.
What is the right way? Should I have used the indefinite article?
