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…
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]

I remember it well! ☔️
as if it were yesterday even!
Puddles are indeed such wonderful elements! Beautiful shots, Laura.
Here’s to warmer days. 🤗
thanks for your appreciation and the hope Marina – the sun is battling back till midweek for now
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.
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
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.
wet weather is better for poets David – especially moody ones like me 😉
🌧️ = 😍
