rain and sun

Seems hardly right to complain about a bit of extra rain given the recent tragedies unfolding around the planet.
But I can't wait for the moment that the sun streams through the dark grey, creating the most wonderful of light. 
As seen some months ago on this blog - I think I posted one or two of these then but I've re-edited them since. 



































I'll be back with new material just as soon as the rain stops pelting down.

  3. Glad I'm not the only one complaining about the rain. But this week has been sunny so far in London so we must've swapped weather! The 2nd b&w photo is perfect - really captures the mood of 'after the storm' when the sun finally breaks through all those dark clouds in the late afternoon - love it!

  5. Finally we have some sun here in Munich and something that is starting to resemble spring! I love these rainy day shots Louise. Love, love, love the last one. Thanks for sharing them with us. Alison x

  6. Di - Very happy to be of service!

    Cathy - Car leak, no good. My car is covered in layers of mud, chewed up bat food and other miscellaneous matter sent from the heavens. But it goes and that's what I love about the poor old thing.

    Anne - Thank you.

    Nat - London, sunny?! Glad you like Sydney in the wet.

    Alison - Sun in Munich too. What's going on up there?!

  7. If you all blow at the same time in a westerly direction, do you think the rain would make it to Perth and the south west? Lovely pics as always

    Louise I love how you see things in a way most of us just wouldn't notice. Your pictures show us a whole new perspective on life.
    Particularly love the close up man in bus stop.

  12. Got to agree with you Ellen, cold rain is the nicest kind. Havent dropped in on your blog for a while Louise as I realised you'd finished the suburbs...thought Id opo over and find out when the book was out. I think suburb surfing has become a new sport. I've lived in Kogarah for three years and kept trying to pop down to Oatley and take a look, I got lost twice (sad I know) and had to get tired kids back home but yesterday finally made it down there. It wasnt on your list of 52. Of you get a chance there's be some fantastic photo opportunities. Lots of green space, a village clock and a lovely village atmosphere. Looking forward to your future projects...

  13. I think rain is a blessing because it helps set a real serene mood and gives people around it a very calming aura. From your photos, I am already able to feel that sense of tranquillity emerging from my senses. I guess it is just the way you pictured them with the composed neutral hues and saturation until the extent of me almost being able to hear the raindrops trickling on the ground. If you are looking for constant sunlight and persistent warmth, then Gold Coast is a good place to head down to.
