Not an especially auspicious start

Not an especially auspicious start to the month.

1st of May, mid-evening, and the rain starts hammering down. And, although easing off a little, carries on raining throughout most of the night.
And no, I didn’t get any pics! Circumstances, opportunity etc. Oh well.

Not any pics of the rain itself that’s to say. But I do manage sometimes to come across the most curious things.

Like this for example, discovered abandoned, about half-five the following morning…

Hmm. Someone must have gone home wet.

    Well it was windy as well, which of course is always the cause of a brolly reversal. I took mine with me specifically because IF I take my brolly, the promised rain never materialises, so if I want good weather, its my trusty sidekick.
    Thanks for the comments by the way on Flickr.
    I also plan to do some ‘stange things seen pics’ around our town soon.

      Yep, definitely a bit on the windy side too.

      And “strange things seen” pics are good (and fun)… if one has the presence of mind to snap ’em. Which I rarely do!

    Don’t worry your not on your own with that one! Take the day when just as I was passing, a pidgeon walked into our local Greggs the bakery shop. Now had I had my camera handy in my pocket I would have snapped that, and then titled it ‘got any breadcrumbs for me and me mates?’ but I didn’t have my camera with me!
    That’s just one incident I can think of off the top of my head.
    I haven’t an excuse either because my Sony is so slim and small it easily tucks into my coat pocket, its not huge.

    Rain and no shots? No shots taken while laying upon the cold and wet pavement??

    Alright… who are you and what have you done with the real Mike?
