Mother Earth

It’s cold and raining in New York today.

However, it’s so pleasant to remember that our planet always have terrific warm places.

Just imagine that you are in one of them!

Monster

My surprises come usually once I start rolling and photographing.

One day it was raining hard in Hollywood (Florida). As the result there was a lot

of water on the floor of the loggia of our apartment.

Raindrops continued to drop on the water in the loggia and it looked to me as a

new organism was born there.

I took my camera, zoomed it on water on the floor and took a shot. Then I made

the photo in black and white.

I got a surprise – a living monster.

 

SURPRISE

Gentle beauty

It’s raining hard outside.

But my beautiful neighbors are with me and I am happy.

Here is one of them.

Is rain a painter?

TRANSMOGRIFY

This week WordPress Photo Challenge is transmogrify. It means:

“To change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.”

We know that rain used by many artists and photographers to show force of nature, its beauty, its life force.

The first picture below shows rain from the window of the 25th floor in Hollywood, Florida.

It’s darker outside, there is a lot of water on the floor of the loggia. However, there is nothing strange or grotesque in this picture.

The second picture shows a shot of rain on the floor of the loggia. I made it in black and white to strengthen the impression that all drops of rain created.

Here everything changed completely. There is a picture with many circular and non-circular shapes, there are eyes that look at you and judge you.

Hopefully, all eyes are friendly.

Close to my eyes and heart

Coincidence?

Yesterday was a perfect sunny day in Hollywood, Florida.

Local weather experts promised another gorgeous day today.

However, soon after I published a post “RAIN” weather changed and heavy rain started.

So instead of going to the broadwalk and enjoying a brisk walk along the Atlantic ocean I went to our gym and spent vigorous 40 minutes on a treadmill.

It’s very good that our broadwalk stays with us at any weather day and night.

When it is raining in Hollywood, Florida

In Hollywood people usually walk in tee-shirts and shorts and swim in the ocean all winter. But there are days of heavy rain and strong winds. Those days are very good for remembering happy moments and creating masterpieces.

Today is the fifth day of rain here. I enjoy more sleep and my imagination is running wild together with my memories. Results are below.

Please let me know if you like any of them.

Short walk

It was raining very hard and I opened a window to enjoy sights and smells.

A man and a dog went out from our building and turned left.

I thought: “Why were they going for a walk in such weather?”

I grabbed my camera and was ready to make a shot when they pass a huge bush on their way left.

However, suddenly they appeared before me.

Both were smiling!
