That Rainy Day Feeling... Again!

Do you know the song "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again" by The Fortunes? I'm living that song. Everyday is either rainy or it looks like it'll be raining soon. But, that's okay; we must embrace it, go out and enjoy it. So, camera in hand (Sigma Sd Quattro camera and Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens) I ventured out into the rain and started shooting pictures.

The cherry trees along the Ookagawa river seem to be the first victims of Autumn.

Grey skies are alright
Washed with the rain
Of yesterday's night

You can't see the rain but it's there.

These guys don't care about a little rain.

The lack of sunshine enhanced the beauty of the red bricks.

I guess I'm alone in my making the most of a rainy day.

The ships come and the ships go - some prefer to just walk on by.

We're embracing the precipitation now!

The Yokohama Customs House reflected in a puddle of water.

Another day, another ship.

Walking the pier at Osanbashi.

Rain clouds are heading our way.

Once one starts looking for reflections in puddles they are everywhere.

I think I just found the Japanese version of Dorothy Gale roaming through the rose garden in Yamashita park.

Grey skies over the Hikawa Maru.

The orange rose. Makes me want to drink a tequila sunrise.

The girl with the red shoes sits patently in Yamashita park. I decided to give her a little protection from the rain drops.

Plenty of room on the benches today.

School field trip - time to regroup and rethink the plan of attack.

I see an independent spirit here.

The rain brings people together, especially when only one has an umbrella.

The rain don't get me down!

And, this park don't clean it's self.

We made eye contact. I smiled. She didn't smile. End of story.

The runner.

There's a lot of love going on here.

Here in Japan if one waits for a nice day to go out, one will never leave the house.

There is nothing better on a dreary wet day than a bowl of ramen .

Moving kind of slow, but still moving none the less.

Going to lunch.

We're all going to lunch.

A little rain is not going to deter serious shoppers.

There was a sale on this day in the Motomachi shopping district. Lots of women going from store to store.

A lot of high end stores on this street. Bring money!

Never to young to learn how to shop 'til you drop.

Last shot of the day:
She wasn't smiling at me; this is a case of "shopping makes me happy".

Thanks for stopping by!
