Rainy Day Kyoto

IMG_7038

A  rainy morning in Kyoto. The immediate reaction is one of disappointment – a damper on photographic aspirations for the day. But umbrellas have their own aesthetic charm, as do rain-washed streets and silvery skies. The kimono-clad young women who throng the streets of the old city do not seem at all phased by such inclement weather, so why should a camera-toting gaijin?

  1. I have been to this beautiful city many years ago. Thank you for this post.

  2. My pleasure, Martina. It’s a gorgeous city – and the rain stopped the next day.

    Rain or not, it looks great, Laurence. I know the immediate disappointment, but as you say, umbrellas have their own aesthetic charm, as do rain-washed streets and silvery skies. And the beautiful ladies are beaming.🙂
    Hope the two of you had a wonderful time in Japan. We look forward to seeing you in Cley!
    We are off to Cambridge for a couple of days as from tomorrow. The Annexe will be occupied by friends from Germany the first two weeks of May, then free again. Just give us a ring, any time.
    Sunny greetings Bonn, phew, it’s like summer!🙂
    Best regards, Hanne

  4. Rain or not, it turned out to be a wonderful day in the end. Enjoy Cambridge. Hope to see you in Cley before too long.
    Best wishes, Laurence
