Wearing Pearls in the Rain

Rain copy

When it rains, I wear pearls.  Pearls and red lipstick.
And suddenly thundery shades of gray become glittery, glistening and romantic.

  1. Hi west517, Lovely and atmospheric, especially like the bicycle and the blurry wet silhouette! ⭐ The bicycle could almost be a photo in Cambridge (England) where all the students ride bikes and attach them to the railings! It’s strange to see the rain, the sun is still shining here! PS Not been on WP for a week but just posted a new ‘door’ post if you missed it ! 🙂


    1. Hey Jane! I’m so happy you like them! 🐻 I love bicycles! It’s actually been rainy everyday here~ Can’t wait to check out your “door” post– I’ve not bee posting as much this past week as well… super BUSY at work! ❤ ❤


    2. Hey Jane! Happy Monday~ I just wanted to let you know I’m back on Google+ — I’m planning to use it mostly for images I take w/ my cell phone 😀 …so you’ll be seeing me a little more (if you’re still there 🙂 )


      1. Expertly trained I’d say ~ (lolol) …seriously I wish I had her 5ft.7 in. … at least I have the 5 ft. … I was just shorted on the inches. 😀


  2. super cool – pearls and red lipstick. and the images are cool. and for me, I rarely wear pearls – but when I do – I like to wear something navy or black… 🙂


    1. Thank you sooo much Stacy! That really means a lot to me…that really warms my heart 🙂 ….btw if you’ve never worn pearls and red lipstick in the rain you must try it sometime—its like magic! Completely changes the mood ❤ ❤


  3. I see that you have a huge job to reply to comments isn’t? Take your time to reply to this one West.

    I just want to say that this is right in my tones. Perfect deep of field, beautiful B&W and I feel you were inspired by the rainy mood for those pictures. Love them all! 🙂


    1. Hi Meho!! 🙂
      You know I actually thought of you when I was working on this post~ specifically some of your street photographs that are eye level (LOVE THOSE).

      I’m so happy you like it. Some of these shot were a little difficult in the rain, but I really wanted to capture the “Rainy Day” atmosphere– especially with the bicycle images.

      1. You did West! You really captured this mood very well! I am happy that you’ve find inspiration in those ” rat view ” pictures. This is my favorite perspective. 🙂

      1. I meant to ask you, Would you like to be a contributing author to my blog? Does not have to be regular but every now and then. Any topic you like..Current events, sports politics…funny..serious whatever…controversial is good also


      1. I love finding places that are pretty much broken, old industrial sites with graffiti, the decent stuff, not just the verbal tags, but the artistic interesting stuff. Round where I live, there are a number of places in Manchester and the other old industrial cities like Sheffield that have some many hidden gems that get me excited.


      2. I particularly like abandoned places … houses a little more than industrial sites ~ and where I live (unfortunately) there is very little graffiti (lol) but lots of ocean and some very nice “broken down” houses and antique type things 🙂


      1. thats easy. 🙂 i send you an invitation, you will get it on email and on your dashboard. if you accept it, you can post pics on the blog like on your normal blog, but you are just able to post stuff, all the admin stuff is inactiv.


      2. just a post, just post at any time you like and how often you like. you can also just reblog pics from people you are following if they will post nice bike pics 🙂
