Rain and Parking Garage and Road and Houses

Last week I showed you the pedestrian bridge at the hospital and I described its structure. After I tore myself away from examining steel, I looked out the windows. It was a rainy day and the glass was covered with drops. Somehow it made an ordinary scene really beautiful, I think.

I even like this blurry one.

Rain Scene 1 Bryn Mawr Hospital 2-20

I went to college about two miles from here and my first apartment was in a complex within a short walking distance of this location. The area has changed very much, though, in the forty years or so since then – this building did not exist. Looking out of the windows of the doctor’s office I could not orient myself. Well, that’s all right. Nothing stays the same. I’m focused on today and the view that this February rainstorm and this new (to me) building has given me to enjoy.

  1. I love looking at a scene through the prism of raindrops. There is a more scientific way to describe that but you know my brain doesn’t work that way.

    • Thank you. I love the way each one is like a little crystal ball or tiny magnifying glass and then of course there are the patterns the drops themselves make, never mind what they do to the scene behind. So many layers.
