September 26, 2013 … into every life …

Unlike today, which was beautiful, yesterday was rotten.

Rain was the pattern for most of the day, and was certainly already quite entrenched as I set out.

Lunch in town with some of my former colleagues was all very nice, but the rain was very heavy. Since I arrived near the lunch venue ahead of schedule, I was able to play around with some rain shots. The wipers in the car were off. so this is the immediate view from my driver’s seat.

No point in wasting time while waiting for lunch

Every picture teaches something

Depth of field is an interesting concept and by throwing the focus further out, the camera can no longer “see” the rain on the window except as a film of moisture that dulls the view up Abel Smith Street.

Eastward along Abel Smith St, towards Taranaki St.

I simply ran out of time to write more today, and am just back from a dinner in which several of us celebrated a thousand (1,000) days of taking at least one photograph every day. Very pleasant indeed. Photographers, at least the ones I know, are very nice people.

See you tomorrow.


About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
