a photo a week challenge – unexpected

Unexpected !!!!

I’m very slow to react to the unexpected because my camera is always in my bag and it takes a while for me to get up and going … and by then the moment is gone.

One thing that very often happens unexpected and takes us by surprise and that I love to capture is the rain.

“And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down.
Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.”
Gilbert K. Chesterton

In April 2015 did I revisit Japan after 37 years … and I couldn’t recall from 1979 that April in Japan means rain … a lot of rain. (Sanjūsangen-dō temple, Kyoto / April 2015)

”Life’s not about waiting for the storm to pass…
It’s about Learning To Dance In The Rain.”
Vivian Greene

“If it never rains, you will stop noticing the sunshine.”

A delicious bite in waiting of the rain to stop outside the famous market, Mercado do Bolhão in Porto (May 2018)

“Rain is just confetti from the sky”

It had rained while we enjoyed a fantastic dinner at “DREIGUT”, Berlin –  September 2015

Being soaked with your best friend is an adventure.”
Emily Wing Smith
