I tell my blues they mustn’t show
but soon these tears are bound to flow
cause it’s raining – raining in my heart ~ Buddy Holly
It was unusually wet this morning. The skies were dark and foreboding. My heart was hurting; it seemed as if nature was empathizing with me so I thought I’d snap a few pictures. One of the nice things about digital cameras is that you can switch to monochrome mode at the flick of a switch. This is exactly what I did for the above shot. I deliberately underexposed by one stop to enhance the bleak mood. I then shot the picture below (same vantage point) in color. Even so, it was still very monochromatic, save for the red roof of the temple (to convey a glimmer of hope, perhaps)
And finally another shot to convey the storm. I shot at a relatively slow shutter speed to blur the rain.
Moments after shooting these pictures the rain stopped and the skies cleared. This too, shall pass?
