it's raining, it's pouring


i don't get very inspired to go take pictures when it is raining. usually in pasadena i don't have that excuse, but lately we've had quite a bit of rain - like maybe more rain than we've had the entire year and a half we've lived in southern california.

it appears that some of my blogging neighbors are also feeling a little wet. case in point here, here, here, and here.

you may recognize this view - it's another shot of the perspective we get from our balcony.

Oh, I like it when you photogs actually catch the rain as it falls.

I'm stuck over at Pasadena Adjacent

This is my favorite photograph of yours. I think the last time I said that was when you posted a photograph of an abandoned shopping cart. I like this one better.

Thanks AH!

Palm, coming from you that is a great compliment!

I remember that shopping cart pic, too. I love it.

This is a great representation of how the latest storms have soaked us. Great capture, Ben!

Looks like a couple of Dr. Seuss characters peering over the rooftop!

Laurie, I was surprised looking through my blogroll that you and Petrea haven't really posted any rain pics yet!

PIO - I hadn't thought about that, but you are exactly right.

Fantastic shot! the rain, the different shades of gray of the trees/palms - this is really, really well photographed.
