It's been raining/cloudy here since last Thursday. One whole week of clouds, darkness, and drippy yucky water. No major storms (though Sunday was quite a doozy) just a constant feeling that if you stand outside too long you'll be drenched even though you never spotted a rain drop.
So I tried to take some pictures of this malaise spring storm. Then I realized it takes a lot of work to get a picture of moisture hanging in the air. And since I don't have a microscope attached to my camera I took this instead. You can always tell it's been raining around campus by the number of bags tied to bikes seats. I wonder just who came up with this idea? I don't remember them being as popular when I was younger, but then again I was younger aka stupider and didn't care much if my ass got all wet from a bike seat.
This picture was a random snap. I spotted a robin and hoped I'd get enough time to turn on the camera, line it up right and snap the picture before she flew off. I just managed to beat her as while the camera was loading she zipped away:Actually I liked this picture so much I decided to try copying it (sort of) in a painting.
I like to think of it as a weird combo of the two things I'm good at, abstract colors and branches.Is anyone else trapped in a horrible cycle of never ending gray clouds and rain? Do you feel like your keyboard should be moist thanks to all the water in the air?
Do you want to join me in my campaign to smash up the lemonade stands for everyone who's had wonderful weather every weekend? Because I just got my hands on a really nice big hammer and rented a van.
