Let It Rain

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. ~ Longfellow

I walked out into the fog & rain this morning and wandered to the ponds outback. It felt like I was living somewhere magical and beautiful. You’d never know that a giant grocery superstore is being built just behind these trees!

Fog can put a lovely layer of beauty in-between the chaos that exists.

The colors that come out when it’s damp are so exquisite.

On my way back to the house, I found this red drop coming from this blue berry, it must have been there long enough to extract some of the juices in the berry? Raindrops & fog who could ask for a better morning to wander.

Have you seen these dreamy photos that the google street view cameras took…

A few photo tips I learned from google street view camera:

  • Travel to beautiful places.
  • Take more photos of empty streets, they lead the eye.
  • Go shoot when it’s foggy, everything looks dreamy.

    We had rain yesterday, too. The fog came at night, so I didn’t get a shot of it.
    Great shots!

    That last one is a real beauty.

    i used to walk in our park in the city and there were these honeysuckle bushes that smelled delicious. you would never know that there were cigarette butts down the path or graffiti on the benches in that moment of walking by the bushes…
    grateful for that red drop!
