  12. 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™‚

  13. 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.

  24. 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.

  26. 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.

  29. 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!

  30. 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.

  32. 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.

  35. 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).

  36. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  53. 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.

  55. 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
