  1. Wonderful! Love “London Shoppers”

  2. Very well done. πŸ™‚
    (Rain is the – main – reason I left Europe!)
    πŸ˜‰

  3. Ah purple rain is a really striking image. I’d to be able to like rain but it akes me grumpy!

  4. WOW….absolutely brilliant!!! these photos truly blow my mind!!!πŸ‘

  5. Wow these pictures are great! Did you use any particular editing software? Also, what camera did you use to take these pictures?

  6. Variations of the rain and blur. I like it!

  7. Some dramatic photos, Jane. I love the blur that you captured in so many, but my favorite is “Purple Rain”.

  8. I love warm, rainy days, particularly the smell of it. Where were you to capture purple rain? You must have been high.

  9. Wonderful!!! I remember your previous rainy day images … these will add nicely to your collection.

  10. You’re certainly feeling the rain! What a terrific variety of feelings, too. I love the first three – the first because it’s just perfect, the second for its atmosphere and the third becasue it’s familiar. And “Purple Rain” is fascinating. Cheers, Jane, and here’s to rain! πŸ™‚

  11. A lot of rain which has become our winter storms … and today, a blizzard across parts of Colorado. πŸ™‚
    Then, there’s that other rain song, “Rainy Days and Mondays”, the old Carpenters’ standard.

    • Hi David, I bet you are hunkering down with the snowstorms. It’s clear and lovely now in SF. The rain sure helped us. The Carpenters are my guilty pleasure. Love that one. Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  12. I love these soft, moody images, Jane, and I especially like the Roger Miller quote that started it all.

  13. For the most part… not crazy about rain… viewing it thru your eyes…I so,appreciate it ! Thanks for sharing!

  14. What a great series of photographs! I love them.

  15. Love these Jane – so much beauty in the ordinary.
    Alison

  16. Superb, Jane. I really like the red umbrella ladies – it grabs you!

  17. Some of the best rain px I have seen.

  18. If I β€˜had’ to pick a favourite it would be Purple Rain β˜”οΈπŸ˜Ίβœ…

  19. Beautiful rainy days through your lens!

  20. Beautiful series, Jane! Every single shot is pretty unique. I like the colors in the half abstract City Window; and the movement in Seeing Red is great πŸ™‚

  21. Great post. The quote was so perfect for this amazing images.

  22. These are wonderful, “Seeing Red” and “Purple Rain” in particular are real show-stoppers. But my favorite is the b&w “Don’t Quit,” which seems to capture an impromptu dance routine.

  23. It’s amazing how much beauty is missed when it rains. Gorgeous work Jane. Isn’t it nice to have weather proof gear ?

  24. You evoke city rain so exquisitely here, Jane, and uniquely. I love seeing all the cities, and the many images, and your titles add an extra dimension. I especially like “Don’t Quit.” Truly wonderful series.

  25. Great captures, Jane. I did not take many pictures in the rain. Now I got inspired. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  26. Some lovely rainy abstracts here Jane – gotta love Purple Rain though! Great use of negative space.

  27. I’ll grant that rain might be good for one’s art (and crops, of course), but I’m afraid I can’t be quite as positive about a dreary, wet, gray day as you and Mr. Miller!

  28. You are a master of the art. This is an incredible theme that draws your viewers deeply into the beauty that rain as a subject can present. Jane, you do these things so well and your natural talent of bringing feeling and emotion to your images and conveying stories visually is outstanding.

    • Hi Elliot, Your kind response to this post makes my day. I really appreciate your thoughts coming from your well-trained and experienced eye. Thank you very much. Wishing you a creative and inspiring 2019!

  29. Always love your intriguing rainy day shots.

  30. I love the ‘Empire State Crossing’. I has lovely blurriness. It reminds me of the pavement art in Mary Poppins when it starts to rain.

  31. hi jane many wonderful pictures of rainy days in different cities, i especially like the 3rd, 5th, 6th and 8th.
    greetings robert

  32. I feel like I’ve just been in the shower, Jane πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Great captures!

  33. Nice photographs. Though it seems strange for me to see pictures of rain as all we get here for 3 or 4 months is snow (which isn’t that often, though it does stay on the ground for quite a long time).

  34. Stunning photography! You know how to see the bright side of a gloomy, rainy day. πŸ™‚ Each visual is so beautiful captured and takes me to the time when I used to enjoy the rain. Thanks you for showing us the world as you see it through your lens Jane. Hugs.

    • Hi Cheryl, I’m so glad I’ve brought you back to the rainy side….at least for the moment. πŸ™‚ I do love a good soggy photo op. Thanks very much for stopping by. Hugs to you, too. πŸ€—

  35. Great captures, Jane….almost makes me want to go out in the rain!

  36. Your photos incite towards loving Rain πŸ˜‰

  37. simply stunning and elegance…

  38. I love rainy days! And with your Pictures I love them even more!

  39. Great images….love seeing the raindrops w such clarity

  40. Wonderful series Jane. You have made it extremely difficult to select my favorite of the series. I’m leaning to City Window because of its subtle abstract quality. It does not pop like some of the others like Flag a Taxi (nice title) but City Window keeps drawing me back to look again. I also like Don’t Quit for it dynamic range and beautiful tones. Please keep them coming.

  41. I really like the look and feel of these images. They are very impressionistic and abstract but certainly convey a feeling of rain. Makes me want to be inside with a cup of coffee.

  42. Thank you Jane for transforming the beauty of rain, in your wonderful images. I do feel the rain.

  43. City Window and London Shoppers are my faves, but I love them all. Anybody can do a beautiful photo on a nice sunny day, but to get great shots in the rain, now that is truly special.

  44. Excellent series, Jane. I particularly like “Purple Rain”. Beautiful in its simplicity.

  45. I can feel it … and it’s cool ..

  46. Your titles are just as stunning as your imagery, Jane. Enjoyed this portfolio.

  47. These are among my favorites if your work Jane, and that’s really saying something. I know you’re working on a series. I can see why!

  48. You make rain look much more interesting than I think about it! Thanks..lovely pictures..

  49. Each one of these beautiful images really tells a story, Jane!

  50. Pure visual poetry. Lovely, Jane!

  51. Loving the rain after a long dry summer! It’s such fun watching the creek come alive as it races out to sea. Almost as good as the awakening of spring. Your rain images bring alive the feeling of the rainy city no matter where you find it! Softening the city’s edges.

  52. I didn’t know you have such a history with rainy impressions. How long have views like these appealed to you?

  53. Really cool theme with the rain –
    The feet/legs in “don’t quit” are sweet and the pops of red (or warm tones) in 3,5,7 and 9 have the post a cool flow

Love to hear what you think...
