Rainy City Night

Hello, again!  It’s been a long time since my last post.  My computer died, I ordered a new one, it had a bad hard drive, and I just this week got the replacement installed.  So, I’m back in the blogging business!

People walking on Meeting Street in the rain.

People walking on Meeting Street in the rain.

The idea for these images came on a cold, rainy night in Providence as I was waiting to meet some friends for dinner.  Having walked around for a while, I got back in my car, which was parked on a side street.  Behind me (to the left of the camera) was a street light.  People were walking by, some running, some seemingly not minding the rain.  I was struck by the effect of the changing colors of the light, as well as the raindrops on the window.  So I took my pocket-sized camera out of the glove compartment and set to work.  The wall of the building was yellow brick, with an orange inset, but the red, yellow, and green of the streetlight gave different overtones.  I hope you enjoy the results as much as I enjoyed making them!

    Beautiful, Laura. The series made me think of Rothko.

    I like how the figures are shadows–very cool play with them. The thumbnails are a little darker on my screen than the pictures, and I like the darker color better. Beautiful!
