52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 33 – Rain


There is so much beauty in a rainy day (which might or might not fade away the longer the rain period is…). It’s the build up of the storm, the clouds that seem so heavy with water, then the release of the rain.

The rain drops themselves, first only a couple then the down pour. The fresh clean air afterwards.

Watching it from inside, listening to the rain drops coming down on the roof, “playing music”…

Life is full of transitions. Transition from young age to young adolescent and to grown up and so on. Transition from job to job, from working to retirement. There’s transition in nature as well, season to season or the change a weather front can bring. I chose a picture of a storm building up after a beautiful sunny day. One of the most powerful changes in nature.

Singin’ In The Rain

stormI bet that you all have one song in mind the moment you look at that title! Right? No matter how old we are, that one song is there, when we hear or read “singing in the rain”. I always loved that song and often, when I go for a walk and it’s raining I start humming it. I know bits of the lyrics but today I wanted to make sure I get it right, so I looked them up.

I’m singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin’
I’m happy again
I’m laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun’s in my heart
And I’m ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I’ve a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin’,
Singin’ in the rain

Definitely a so called happy song. The dark clouds above but you are singing and dancing in the rain and you keep smiling. That is so down my lane.

One Word Photo Challenge – Wet

wetNot the best picture ever but it was for sure wet that day. The water was almost knee high and streets and basements flooded. The hotel we stayed in then took in some people of the neighbor hood who had issues with their roofs due to the storm and water. They didn’t charge them, which I thought was a pretty nice gesture.
