I’ve returned from a two-week tour of friends and family and I know that complaining about our weather is a national pastime but this May has been extraordinarily cold and very wet. Days out turned into days in but the one upside are PUDDLES when London’s pavements are paved like glass…

Some May mornings…”
Simon Armitage – Puddle

Sheltering from the rain, gave me time to wait for the subjects to enter the frame and enliven the shot.

[Taken with a now dated iPhone6 (as I did not want to risk the Panasonic G6 without an umbrella). The camera on it is not, and never was, that good and I’m in the market for an upmarket pocketable compact- and singing “pennies from heaven” in the rain]

  1. The “splashes” of yellow with muted browns and greens as well as water’s shiny texture … the imagined wonderful scent of wet soil. Beautiful. I’ve been exploring pocket cameras also … am stuck as the back viewing screens are often blacked out by the sun.

    1. I read that on dull days we should try to photograph some vivid colour – every cloud has a silver lining for the photographer apparently 😉
      p.s. I know what you mean about the LED screen in sun – it’s even a struggle with the Panasonic but equally am not good at the eye piece and cannot help but squint

  2. puddles are fun when I’m indoors 😀

    I think I prefer my hot dry weather to your wet weather, Laura, but I do have to say that your poetry glistens beautifully.
