This was the result of a rainy-day walkabout in my neighborhood.
Yet another style of Siamese stand-pipe – this time beaded with rain water. It will go into my collection of ordinary objects.
The flower vendor was sheltering from the rain under the awning of a Five Guys burger joint.
A whole family, waiting for something (there’s not a bus stop where they were standing – maybe they were waiting for someone else to come along in a car). The little boy was playing with his umbrella and the mom kept telling him to put it up or put it down, but stop swinging it around or he might poke someone with it.
While the kid didn’t hit the guy with the Starbucks cup, that’s exactly what the mom was talking about with the little boy.
A mom and her daughter out running an errand in the rain.
I liked how the columns of the fire station were reflected faintly in the rain-slick sidewalk.
This half-gate stands in front of a house under renovation. I think one of the construction workers thought I was strange for wanting to take a picture of this.
