Clearing Storm and Golden Gate

 

My Rainy Window series is an ongoing project. These were shot last week with the Fujifilm X-T2 and the 90mm f/2 lens.

  1. It is different as the usual but still impressionistic. My favourites are: “Dusk”, “Dangling” and “Clearing Storm and Golden Gate”.

  3. Sometimes rain blinds the windows with an aura of melancholy.
    My favorite of this series is the one titled “Dangling”

  4. A fab series. I like the way your eye works. I need to think more about droplets. And shadows… And…
    I’m a lousy photographer! 😉
    But thank you for broadening my perspective.

  6. Rain running up the car windows always fascinated me as a child. Sounds as if Shaw invented the digital camera

  7. They’re all great at conveying that moody feeling of rainy days, but for me the sheeting effect in impressions takes the prize. That impressionistic blur just seems to make the world go away and leave me cocooning until the sun reappears. That’s such a superb capture.

    • Thanks so much, Lisa. It’s a manageable project since, sadly, it doesn’t rain that much here. I was pleased with those two images for their different take on the bridge…happy you liked them. Hope you have a great week, too!

  12. Great series of photos, Jane. You show that even in the dreary parts of a day/life, there is beauty to be found. This is also the first time I’ve seen this quote from Shaw, excellent and quite a bit of truth to it ~ although it seems you are much more efficient and producing quality shots 🙂

    • Hi Randall, Happy you enjoyed these and the idea that the everyday can be extraordinary. Shaw gets the point across although, hopefully, we don’t have to wait for a million… 🙂 Thanks for your kind thoughts and I hope you are doing well.

  13. These color photos are wonderful images, but the two B&Ws are my favorites. “Dangling” makes me want to listen for a conversation.

  14. I’m always drawn to shots of windows covered in light refracting raindrops. I have an old photography book from back in the 80’s that refers to such a composition, and I’ve been drawn to it ever since.

  17. Fairly clean windows too. 🙂
    Had some rain on our windows too, but not compared to yours. After a pause in the rain for a few hours, it became a heavy, wet snow last night. At least things look a little greener for the moment. It’ll be back to spring and much drier on Sunday .

  32. You always have such a creative spin to your work, Jane. Really like the impressions shot. I almost looks like a waterfall running down that window, which isn’t always the case unless there’s torrential water coming down. From your photos behind windows and rain, your shots sort of convey the idea there’s a big world, maybe a bit bad world, mainly unknown place out there 🙂

    • Hi Mabel, It is amazing to me all the different patterns the rain makes. Impressions was during a huge torrent of rain. Glad these got you thinking although I would like to say that I am not afraid of whatever is out there! 🙂 Thank you for your kind thoughts.

  36. Moody – but somehow gives hope of a meaning to rainy days except the obvious about the crops growing. Love your series really – and the quotes (Never heard GB Shaw’s before even if he is a favorite of mine…) I might even start liking rain. I will save these photos in my mind for rainy days in November. Wishing you a great weekend.
