Wet Day

This is what it actually looks like from the bus on a wet day. Wednesday was so very wet my boots were soaked through.

The bus was rather cosy...


...but the poor mother in the statue in Union Square must have been feeling pretty chilly.

Also the apple which had been knocked off the apple cart and was sitting in a puddle.

In the evening the ESB was swathed in mist and the top kept coming and going.

  9. You know, the photographs you take are scrumptuous and evocative, but I have to say, that apple sitting alone in the puddle is moving in an odd way. you really captured something!

  10. It is rain also in Tokyo.
    The rain became into the snow at a moment and back into the rain soon.
    It's first snowing in this season.

  12. Yes, I agree with Chris - the apple has a certain pathos. Must be the bold colour on grey which evokes it. Bit reminiscent of that wonderful film 'Le Ballon Rouge'. More wonderful photos, Elizabeth...keep 'em coming!

  14. Did you gave your poor feet a nice hot soaking bath? It is frosty cold here and the whole world is gray.

    I love the fog swirling around the top of the Empire State Building. Cool pics, (in both senses of the word).

  16. I actually really like riding the bus - where we live now, it's not really viable - I always liked the idea that I could just sit and ride and watch the world enter and leave until my stop - so obviously, I love the bus pics and the lone apple sitting in the rain!

  20. Let me join in and sing praises for these atmospheric photos.

  21. Elizabeth...I'm out here in Phoenix, Arizona. My good friend Tom Clohessy sent me a link to your site. I absolutely love your photos. You've captured the essence of your surroundings,a glimpse,a peek in,you're actually seeing things around you that are generally overlooked by most people.There's palpable joy when I see the apple in the puddle of the pink hue in the telephone kiosk pic. I'll stop by often. Best to you. Steve
