"A poet is someone who stands outside in the rain hoping to be struck by lightning." James Dickey
Rain is probably my most favorite word in the whole dictionary. Rainy weather makes me feel happy and creative. I love the smell of it, the sound and the feeling of cleanliness it leaves behind. Rain makes everything look more beautiful.
I shot this photograph today. In the morning it was absolutely clear then in a few hours we had a bout of rain that almost flooded everywhere.
This photograph was captured on my iPhone using the Hipstamatic app. Some minor editing was done in PS CS4. Settings for Hipstamatic were BlacKeys B&W/Lucifer IV.
