To my mind black and white images love rain. Puddles and water drops making their lovely circles sing in the wet.
Umbrellas are a dime a dozen in rainy day photographs, but here we’ve got this great tree that makes all the difference.
What’s more fun on a rainy day than splashing your way through puddles in pretty yellow boots?
When faced with any adversity, in this case rain, The Boston, Beacon Hill matrons make the best of it and carry on.
If only we could have yesterday’s weather today. But so be it, the day is a happy one anyway.
I wish I could post a more upbeat photograph to mark Earth Day but, the rain and gloom of today seems more appropriate. If those in power (I’m looking at you Trump.) don’t wake up soon to the disaster this planet is facing our grandchildren are facing a terrible future.
Rain, rain and more rain soaks us, yet the colors of spring turn the gloom into glory.
“Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,
hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees”….Rilke
