It’s just the rain…

“I went to bed and woke in the middle of the night thinking I heard someone cry, thinking I myself was weeping, and I felt my face and it was dry. Then I looked at the window and thought: Why, yes, it’s just the rain, the rain, always the rain, and turned over, sadder still, and fumbled about for my dripping sleep and tried to slip it back on.”

― Ray Bradbury,
Green Shadows, White Whale: A Novel of Ray Bradbury’s Adventures Making Moby Dick with John Huston in Ireland

The picture is a from a recent hour at a bus stop, using a camera with just enough battery life to capture this moment in Downtown Seattle.

Picture of Today 11/28/16, Seasonal Greetings…

Just the late night here, of the first Monday of the holiday shopping season, after the Black Friday and Cyber Monday. All is quiet for the line tree standing in Westlake Center in Downtown Seattle. There shall be more busy days ahead, of dazzling lights and people scurrying about, shopping for gifts and getting into the spirit. I might be asleep, procrastinating through much of it…

Picture of Today 10/31/16, This Halloween Night

Halloween. This time, a little cold, wet, and quiet.

This night on a Monday, with a little misty rain above. The prior weekend held plenty of spooky festivities, so there was plenty time to enjoy live the spirit ahead of the day. Today is good enough for brave and venturous trick or treaters. For all else, the night is best spent indoors, watching a fitting movie of the horror and/or suspense genre.

Here’s a personal favorite, underrated classic for anyone staying up late on any cold, quiet spooky night. Theater of Blood, starring Vincent Price as an overly passionate Shakespearean actor, planning fatal revenge on his naysaying critics. Diana Rigg co-stars. Here is the whole film:

Enjoy!

Picture of Today 7/14/2016, The Late Ice..


When your drink is done and there is nothing left but the ice. You free a cube and put it down. Study and see what makes that melt. It’s the lovely time. Enjoy it for all it’s worth..

Picture above take by me. With this and yesterday’s pic, I realize newer smartphones are awesome at capturing the details of small things. Try out yours if it’s at least 12mp, and fresh within recent years

Picture of Today 2/24/16, the Dark Night Rises

A long exposure for a long night. Rain is happening and I must go.

The shot is from the upper Pier 66 platform, towards Seattle’s Great Wheel and Century Link Stadium. 

Sweet dreams..

Picture of Today 2/5/16, To the Light

  
Just a light outside home, from a long walk in the pouring rain.

The downpour nearly ends, just as I approach the front door. It was then I look up, for what caught my attention. I was drawn to the light. So was the tree nearby. And, the tiny little drops on its little twiggy branches are drawn to the light. They will stay for much the night, adding sparkle.  You just have to notice it all, and be drawn yourself.
