So what happened to wanting to do black and white...? Um, I discovered it was difficult. Herewith last week's Wednesday monsoon...
taken from a bus going down the East Side.
What charming distortions the raindrops make!
As they teem down the windowpane.
Lots of bright colored umbrellas as well as the black ones.
How oddly painterly it looks
and what nice colors.
This umbrella is on its last legs
and this one is positively busted.
Luckily the 4th dawned fine, so all the sellers of patriotic stuff
could set up shop on 23rd Street.
Dallas BBQ celebrates everything.
So, up to the roof at 9:25 pm to take hopeless photos.
Such fleeting joy
much better enjoyed without trying to capture it.
My friends at Novica, who sell all sorts of lovely crafts and clothing from all over the world, have offered me two $50 gift codes(one for me and one for one of my readers). I'm probably going to get a pretty Indian blouse. So do write a comment and I'll draw a name next Sunday 14th.
Note: US and Canadian people do not have to pay any customs duty. UK customers seem to have to which seems a pity. Em of Dartmoor Ramblings ended up paying too much around Christmas time....
