City Rain

A real plus about the Fuji x100v is that it’s OK to use it in the rain. The lens gets water blurry of course but, the quality of the sensor is so good that even with that, the image comes out pretty well.

These folks were sheltering under a building’s big overhang not really wanting to walk out into the soaking rain. Putting them in the lower left of the image created plenty of space for me to show the soggy street.

I’m pretty happy with this image.

Rainy Day Rumination

The stock market’s down almost 1900 points. We’re still “sheltering in place”. Translation: Stuck in here.

AND….It’s raining cats and dogs.

Come to think of it being inside right now isn’t so terrible. Can’t say that though about the economy.

Rain rain and MORE RAIN

We have access to a widow overlooking Boston Common, a lovely 50 acre park. Smack dab in the middle of the city. The land is a fantastic asset and used daily by many many people. Not so the day before yesterday. That day, the rain NEVER stopped!

Summer rain is one thing, but February rain is something completely different. As this image, hopefully shows.

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?

Mother’s Day Weather Boston…2019

If only we could have yesterday’s weather today. But so be it, the day is a happy one anyway.

Earth Day

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
