Thank God for the rain to wash the trash off the sidewalk

This is obviously a manipulated photo – the Cardinal version of Travis Bickle:

The theme for #photo101 today is Treasure. The rain that washes the trash off the sidewalk, Taxi Driver, they’re both treasures.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal 2

I just posted a photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge theme ‘renewal’ earlier tonight, but in the spirit of the challenge I went and ‘renewed myself’ by taking some fresh shots. I’ve taken multiple light trail shots of the train earlier, but this time I tried out a new, elevated angle.

What images does Renewal conjure for you? Get creative. Think beyond the usual images (a sunrise, a birth). – Cheri Lucas, WordPress

Here’s two of them, fresh out of the camera:

Light-trails from train photographing in low-light, with the cityscape of a rainy Oslo in the background.

Another Rainy Day

Rain, rain, rain. 

“It will rain all this night and we will sleep transfixed by the dark water as our blood runs through our fragile life.”
― Charles Bukowski
