Rainy days and Mondays

OK its not a Monday of course, but as I was walking tot he five this morning in the rain the Song Rainy days and Monday's but he Carpenters came into my head, and if you haven’t heard it I included a link to it at the end of the post, but it also leads to my shots I took today on the little bit of walking I did around the city, which was mainly to and from the office and out for lunch, seems today anytime I ventured outdoors it started to rain.

But I tried to take a positive spin on the day with the shots I got today with my phone which I will share later one, but first as usual here are a couple of recent

I did at least manage to get over my 7.5k Step goal so I am happy enough :)

Now In case your wondering do I pick the camera photos the night before or think about what shots I have and then decide what to take photos of with my phone each day or the other way around, well I just see what I see each day on my walks and prepare the actifit Phone photos of my post often on the train ride home from the city and then when I get home see what shots I have in my folders that may in some way relate to the photos I took on my walk. And for today I came up with these

This shot is by Central park near 59th Street and ties into the rainy day theme with the puddle after some rain the night before I took this a few weeks ago

And sticking with Puddles for my camera shots to start the post, A shot taken in Central Park and showing Central Park tower the second tallest buildign in NYC, can still fit into a puddle from the right angle.

My Rainy day shots from today

I saw today that @mrightmare89 has started a new tag/challenge My Thursday so I am submitting this post for that as well

As I said above my thoughts for most of the shots today were rain-related, starting with this shots showing many people were using umbrellas when out and about on the streets today, I myself hate using an umbrella unless it is really bucketing own to keep my camera bag and camera dry, but with the rain I didn’t venture out for photo walk with my camera today.

As I said many people were out with Umbrellas today, this shot was at one stage when the rain was quite light so a mix of people with and without an umbrella in this shot

One thing I dislike about umbrellas well two things

  1. You have to be extra wary when out walking so many have a sense of self-importance so walk with their umbrella at a height that suits them and everyone else should get out of there way, I have lost track of how many times I have to duck my head down to tot he side to miss being hit by someone’s umbrella, it happened at least twice today though.
  2. Why do people need to keep their umbrella up after the rain had stopped I do have a chuckle when I see people walking the street with there umbrellas up when the rain has stopped, and wonder have they noticed it has stopped?

One cool thing about rain is the puddles it brings and sometimes the reflection of can see, Such as this one with the Chrysler building reflected in the puddle, now you may think it is cool how I timed the shot that the raindrops in the puddle are around the top of the Chrysler buildings but I will be honest that was pure luck that it happened with the first ( and only shot) I took of this puddle

Another cool thing about the rain is the sheen it gives to the roadways and pedestrian crossings, here is one without people

Now thanks for those who took the time to scroll down and read this far its something I often wonder how many people do, but if you did you may remember I shared a shot of some Razor wire and mentioned it was above a fenced gate on the side of a building, here is another shot of it, nothing to do with rain, but I did pass by it today and remember someone asked me what was in the alley that they needed razorwire.

And hence this nest cshot which shows the alley way shooting throught he gate which has the razor wire above it, nothing looks particularly valuable to me inhere so I have no idea why they have a need for the razorwire.

The title of this post and the rain today made me think of the song Rainy Days and Mondays as I mentioned above and if ou haven’t heard the song here it is by the Carpenters



And a little footnote I just noticed I hit level 70 today, I remember when I started on here two and a bit years ago think when I saw someone at level 70 Never thought I would make it to there, so Woohoo me LOL

And that's my day in photos with a few words thrown in LOL

And that’s all folks


unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

·

Thanks for the tip :) and I am Ok with more rain but preferably early mornings before I get to the city then the sun coming out so I can get better shots LOL

·
·

Well, then that's what I'll hope for :-)

·
·
·

That works for me :)

Yes that is one nice thing after the rain for sure ;)

Awesome shots but the rain can shove off as far as I am concerned. We got entirely too much and now I am dealing with the aftermath of it... It sucks!

Ohh yeah I have had enough of it as well but I think we have a couple of more days of it at least :(

Wonderful water mirrors, now I understand why you like them, excellent images.

·

Thanks I prefer land and beach scapes for walking and taking photos but you have to see what you can find in the city lol

Congratulations on the 70 level! Well done, you! I love all your rainy day shots, especially the puddles with reflections!

·

Thanks for reading the post and noticing that 😂
Have a great day

LOL I'm going to call you the Magician Tattoo;) it's magic what you accomplished with the image of the Chrysler building.

·

Thanks but that was pure luck and not magic 🙂

·
·

When things are done with such pleasure, luck always rewards.

·
·
·

Often that is the case that is true

@tattoodjay great reflection photos, if I had to choose a favorite I could not do it, I love them all.

·

Thanks so kind of you
Have a great day

Congratulations to level 70! I know what you mean, I felt the same way, lol. Altough I am not quite there yet.

Anyway, those are very cool shots on a rainy day! Reflection in the water is one my favorite themes in photography! Well done!

·

I was surprised when noticed i had hit 70 I thought I was still months away from making it there, as you know once you ge tower level 50 its seems to take ages to go up one more step LOL

Thanks I do love reflection shots and will be checking out any puddles for cool reflections after any rain we get LOL

·
·

The key is to post high quality posts everyday and you have that covered! Well deserved!

I look forward to see more puddle reflections 😊

·
·
·

Thanks again

I got a couple today let’s see how they look when I get them off my camera 📸

·
·
·
·

Oh cool! Always a pleasure 😊

Hahaha, I am 4 years away from 70 JJ.
Maybe those razor wire people don't want their rubbish to be stolen Lol
Congrats with the 70 Mr Puddle Reflection man.
Great shots mate.
Blessings!

·

Well I am a touch younger than you quickly approaching 60
I was thinking maybe at some stage this building was used for something else and thats when the razor wire was installed

Cheers and Blessings

·
·

Hahaha, JJ, I was joking about my rep here. 66 to 70.
You might be right as that razor wire looks very old.
Blessings!

Cool reflections pictures!

·

Thanks have a great weekend

Congrats on reaching 70, wow! Well deserved for posting such beautiful photography! This really is one of my favourites you've done to date, wonderful seeing the reflections in the puddles, but then I'm hearing Rainy Days and Mondays as background music so now we have sound in your post as well;)
Guess what I will be humming all night?
Have a great weekend my friend!

LOl I was humming it a lot yesterday myself and thanks :)

Barbed wire reminds me of war and prison. She comes across much more often than I would like to see her. But sometimes it is photogenic

·

Yes the same for me, I saw a lot of it both in the military and in my time in field Missions, so its not something I thought i would ever get a shot of LOL

·

DSC05529-1.jpg

on the fence of the garden ... what the hell

·
·
·

That looks well worn by the weather and the years

·
·
·
·

it's 400 meters from my house...

·
·
·
·
·

thats so close, just curious had you noticed it before we were discussing Barbed Wire, its funny how when you think about something you are more likely to notice it

·
·
·
·
·
·

I don’t know why, but I always pay attention to the barbed wire. So it turns out. I even have a piece of old barbed wire at home. It has its own magic. This is a symbol

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I see and yes in a way it is a symbol

Wow, that first photo is the best I have seen in a while!

·

Thanks I must be looking for puddles and gettign some more shots like that
