lens-artists photo challenge #91 – simplicity


For me, there is nothing more simple than rain. It’s what it’s. Just for us to accept and adapt.

We don’t have it love it all times, but we so badly need it.

“Do not be angry with the rain;
it simply does not know how to fall upwards.”
Vladimir Nabokov

And it meets us in most places and during all season when we traveling like I did…. in Denmark, Japan, Portugal, Austria, Poland, Germany, and Turkey.

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

“Keep something for a rainy day.”
Traditional Proverb

 “Life’s not about waiting for the storm to pass…
It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
Vivian Greene

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining
is to let it rain.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Rain is not only drops of water. It’s the love of the sky for earth.
They never meet each other but sends love this way.”

“Rain may fall as gently as mercy.”
Richard Grant Whit

“Rain showers my spirit and waters my soul.”
Emily Logan Decens

The Prelude Op. 28, No. 15, by Frédéric Chopin, known as the “Raindrop” prelude, is one of the 24 Chopin preludes. Usually lasting between five and seven minutes, this is the longest of the preludes. The prelude is noted for its repeating A♭, which appears throughout the piece and sounds like raindrops to many listeners. Op. 28 was written during Chopin and George Sand’s stay at a monastery in Valldemossa, Mallorca in 1838.

  1. What a creative and beautiful take on the challenge Vivi. I love how you went “outside the box” to address the subject. And as always your images are simply amazing. So well done!

    • Tina, thank you so much … because I find beauty in rain and for me rain can be very romantic. Oscar love to work in rain, but keep his lens dry is a challenge. I wish a pleasant Easter … stay safe and don’t eat too many eggs. *smile
