Finding Perfection in a Darker Palette


I celebrated a beautiful Spring day yesterday.  Today, the rain came pouring down for most of the day.  I didn’t enjoy the walk to the bus stop and I my walk to work in the downpour was only made better by the presence of my colleague, who I had stumble across at the horrible intersection of Yonge and Eglinton.

However, when I got to work and was able to ditch the umbrella, I took a look outside the window and could appreciate the rain in another way.  It gave the landscape a different vibe that was no less beautiful.

When I think of rainy cities, my mind drifts to Paris and Berlin.  This might have to do with some prints I have seen or movies I have watched.  Of course both cities shine in the sunlight, but there is something romantic about these cities in the rain.


Perhaps odd to celebrate the bleak rainy day, but when you are safe and dry and don’t need to contend with it, it is quite beautiful.  Finding Today’s Perfect Moment there was hard but not insignificant.  I tend to think the rain gives the cities some texture.  I hope I have been able to capture it with the pictures I have taken.
