Slick Pavement

Posted on Sep 15, 2009 | 11 comments

So it seems as though the weather has turned over the past week and all of a sudden the rainy season is upon us. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to have a break in the heat, but I really hope it doesn’t continue on like this! Last winter was the wettest I remember and I’m not ready to go down that road again, so let’s hope it’s temporary. All you travelers, take comfort that it seems to be clear during the day and then rainy in the evening.

In homage to the weather over the past few days, I took this shot out of a friend’s window. The cobblestones almost look like a snakeskin and I love the glistening effect it gives off.

Let’s hope it doesn’t rain this Sunday, when myself, Omino71, and Mr.Klevra will be participating in the Urban Expo at Circolo degli Artisti organized as Shakers! opening party of the season. From 7 pm to 9 pm you can stop by and see my photos projected while Omino71 and Mr. Klevra do some live painting and show off their work. Plus it’s free (and we’ll be inside), so you have no excuse not to come!

  4. I agree with DMae-one of my favorites-right place at the right time-love the reflection-you have a good eye

  5. excellent photo. it does look like very expensive snake skin.

    I'm with you, I hope this winter is not as wet as last year's.

    Of course it's scheduled to rain most of next week and this weekend. sigh.
