Reflecting Pool Reflects Rain

‘Reflecting Pool Reflects Rain’

The last in a mini-series of four photographs of Auckland’s Savage Memorial, taken hastily as the rain came down this week .

The memorial honours Michael Joseph Savage, first Labour Prime Minister of New Zealand, and is one of my favourite local places to visit (even when it is sodding down!)

Pluviophile’s Dream

‘Pluviophile’s Dream’

“These diamonds on my windshield, these tears from heaven”, as Tom Waits once sang, and this photo taken today shows.

Pluviophiles (rain lovers) don’t cry when the sky does.

A dreary Sunday in a lockdown is just an excuse to drive to the nearby shore by myself , and revel in the rain as it sluices from the clouds and drips down the windscreen.

The view may be obsured – but I don’t care – I have diamonds.
