Making The Most Of The Rain! :)

Happy Tuesday Everyone! :)

It has been raining here, in Portland, so much that I have been trying to ignore it, it is too soon, GO AWAY!!!!!! :(

So, to cheer myself up I decided to Make the Most of it and take some fun pictures :)

I hope you Enjoy them :)











"Raindrops on Roses........." (now I am going to have to watch the Sound Of Music :)


I really love this one, I think because of the sense of intrigue :)





We are surrounded, literally every window and door, with Spiders and their webs, must have been a bumper year for them, I have walked into so many webs recently, yuck!  :(


Yep, that is a glimmer of Sunshine in between the torrential rain!




















I love how in these shots the outside lighting makes beautiful shapes with reflective light bouncing off the raindrops on the Bamboo :)











I am really enjoying working with the Black and White photos right now. :)

I am going crazy trying to get everything co-ordinated for the upcoming shows but hopefully the stress and the expense will pay off.  Seriously, you would think I had never done a show before!

I hope your Week got off to a great start :)

And a little better then mine, back to trying to block out the sound of a chain saw right outside my office while our "DARLING" neighbours hack down yet another tree, AAAAAAAAH!!!!!!

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Beautiful as always ! I find myself drawn to the very first photo; the one of the pale coral rose. For some reason it has a soothing Zen like quality to it, a very oriental look and feel to the floral arrangement. Truly lovely.

Poor little spider, wonder if she, or he, had an umbrella ?

I love the black and white ones as well - and yes they do have a bit of intrigue to them ! I wish we had a bit more rain - send some here.

I really like the rain drops with the sun streaming on them. I also like the B&W photos as well :)

Pink Dandy Chatter said...

Wow, you really captured the rain! I tried to do that and mine turned out horrible. I also LOVE the spider web shots. You can see every detail of it.

Charlotte said...

OMG! Another tree?! That is too much!

You take such gorgeous photos! I, too, have walked into many spider webs recently. They're beautiful, but I don't want them on me! *shudder*
