thematic photographic: wet

daily photo {no. 7}

January afternoons in Oregon are generally dark, cold, and wet.  It's sometimes a challenge for me to remain upbeat in the winter. When I arrive at work in the early morning dark, work all day in a windowless photo studio  and then drive home in the gathering gloom, I often don't see the sun for days.  When I get home I want to turn on every lamp in the house and light a hundred candles in an attempt to banish the darkness...which may or may not improve my mood, but I'm sure it makes the power company very happy.

Every Wednesday evening,  Carmi over at the blog Written Inc. posts a photographic theme, and invites everyone to join in. This week's theme is "wet". Hop on over to Thematic Photographic and check it out!

Oh I remember that feeling of going to work in the dark and coming home in it well, Not fun. Even now I get the opportunity to go out in the day times it not much better as on rainy wet days the enviroment has no colour.

Super photo was it taken from the dash of the car

Love this photo - LA winters are like this too, believe it or not! Your picture is so colorful, though!

I love the richness of reflected color here. The Canadian in me agrees with your outlook on winters at these latitudes. They can be dark and depressing. But when you shoot pictures like this, it's almost worth looking forward to winter!
