Rainy night
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

I don't know why you people are complaining about the rain. In a few weeks, it will be snowing, and that kind of precipitation doesn't clean itself up.

Besides, it's gorgeous…

Very nice photo. Captures that weird orange glow that hangs over the city when it's cloudy at night. And there's a faint shadow of the angel hovering behind and below the statue itself -- presumably cast against a bank of fog or drizzle by the construction site's arc lamps. Amazing.

Thank you. The scene caught my eye as I was walking home.

In fact, I got off the bus too late, so if I weren't as distracted, I never would have seen it.

Isn't it? I was so stunned that I stood in the rain until I got a proper photograph.

Um, because all rain makes is impossible puddles and soggy pantlegs while snow is magic that falls from the sky.

That's why.

Have you no joy in your life? Go splash in a puddle while you still can.

I am freezing cold all the time. Do you want me to die?

Rain is okay with me. More chances to wear my rubber boots (or whatever you choose you call them). Plus, I don't have the kind of hair that gets all frizzy when it's damp out.

Again, nice shot. I'm surprised you haven't bought one of those cameras yet.

There are many reasons why I haven't, but the primary one is cost. I know that if I'm going to buy a piece of equipment, I'm going to get one that I can do new and interesting stuff for the rest of my life.

Which means buying the big iron.
