02.10.2013 – It Rained on Sunday…

Also, I finally finished assembling the support for my next project (fingers crossed that painting will be done / posted around the end of the month). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Forrest Gump: “One day, it started raining… and it didn’t quit for four months!  We’ve been through every kind of rain there is: little bit of stinging rain… and big ‘ol fat rain… rain that flew in sideways… and sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.”

– Tom Hanks – Forrest Gump

  1. Those water droplets are something else. They’re magical water droplets. Is that a telephone pole? That is my guess, anyway. You must tell me what it is. This is very cool. I hope your day is sunny tomorrow! Happy Valentine’s Day, Robert!

    • Good eye, B.F! It is indeed a telephone / power pole (one of those… I’m not really sure which… about all I do know is it had a light hanging off it. And it was by a Home Depot. That I know, too.)!
      Thank you so very much, Amy! I hope you and Mr. Bumble have a very happy Valentine’s day, too!

    • Thank you very much, sir!
      Usually I play around with all my photos in Photoshop (even my camera-phone shots), but for some reason this one seemed to be working for me right out-o-the phone.
      🙂

  2. You can make the most simplest shots looks so darn amazing, Sig!
    Looking forward to your end of the month posting. You and Annabelle have a great weekend! 🙂

    • You are always so very kind, Deb!
      I’ll do my best… the more that I look at this painting the more I think, ‘Hmm… maybe I’ve underestimated my time-requirements, here’!
      Thanks again, Deb! I hope you have a good one, too!
      🙂

    • Thank you, sir! I played around with ‘straightening’ the pole in Photoshop… but in the end I just kinda liked the skew, for some reason.
      It is indeed a photo, but I completely agree! That’s a very cool idea!
      🙂

  3. Nice shot of the water droplets!!! I don’t remember Forest talking about rain like that…I need to watch that movie again 🙂 I’m intrigued by your comment about your painting….must be large, if you need support…..hmm? Have a great weekend!!!

    • Thank you so much, Mary! Come to think about it… it’s been a while since I’ve seen it, too!
      I just hope I didn’t underestimate how long it’s going to take, now. And I hate to give away too much, but there may (or may not) be some aluminum involved…
      🙂

    • I think it’s so funny only one other person asked about that, U.M – wow – you are really, really paying attention! This one’s actually for real-zies, though. Which I think just might be a first for me (on this blog, anyway)!
      🙂

  4. I absolutely LOVE photographs like this! I did one around Halloween with rain all over the window and the Halloween props & lights were shining in the background. Looked pretty cool. Keep up the awesome work! You Rock! Happy Valentine’s Day!

    • I really like doing these, too! Sometimes I ‘fake them’ by shooting things through wet glass, even… but this one set itself up for me, so I couldn’t resist!
      How ridiculously kind of you! Thank you so very much! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s as well!
      🙂

  5. I hope you at least pulled the car over to the side of the road to get this great shot.

    “assembling the support” – sounds heavy duty! I can’t wait to see it.

    • Luckily I was in the passenger seat… not that I mean to imply anything about my ‘driving’ ability, but… *shudders*
      There may or may not be some aluminum involved… probably shouldn’t say too much more yet, though.
      🙂

  6. Lovey evocative image. 🙂

    ‘Rain. Makes my day.”
    – Clint Eastwood (The Weatherman with No Name) in ‘ A Few Droplets More’

    • How kind of you to say, Ms. D! I would love to experience an English summer… it’s ridiculously beautiful in my mind!
      Hahaha… oh, how I wish! I’m SO shaky (I think I was just trying to ‘rest’ the phone on the dash here). Seriously… I would need a tripod on the face of the sun – it’s ridiculous!
      🙂

  7. It was a glorius sunny day over here on Sunday 🙂 There was a classic Ealing Studios film called ‘It Always Rains on Sunday’ – a crime drama starring Googie Withers and culminating in a chase around the railway sidings. Worth a watch if you find the time 🙂

    Love the concept and the toning – the light can be quite yellow like that when there’s a storm about 🙂

    • Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a Sunday, Martin! I’ll have to keep an eye peeled… sounds very interesting!
      I’m such a sucker for that ‘strange’ yellow/green light… something kind of eerie / haunting / mysterious about it… maybe because I always associate it with approaching storms, too.
      🙂

  8. this could have been captured here today! lots of rain in the forecast for the next few days.
     
    but it does make for a great composition. really like the mood here. i can just imagine the windshield wipers of an old car crossing the screen at any moment now…. thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks, P&K! We’ve had lots of sunshine the last two days – very nice to see (because only a few days before we had the biggest snowfall of the season)! Still a bit on the cold side out there… but the sun always helps… I hope you get some very soon, too!
      🙂
