How I Spent a Rainy Day

Come on with the rain, I’ve got a smile on my face
I walk down the lane, with a happy refrain
Just singin’, singin’ in the rain…
Gene Kelly

Under an umbrella

What a joy the seasons are! Even when I have to walk in the rain, I can get a creative kick out of it. At least, with a camera strap around my neck and no hurry at all…

Walking in the Rain

When I was visiting my old home town recently I decided to go visit the new museum, Bildmuseet. I had a horrible cold and the rain was poring down all day, but I couldn’t let that stop me. So I grabbed my umbrella and took a slow walk, stoping at every chance, to take photos of wet leafs.

Dripp dropp as we say

It turned out to be one of my best photo walks in quite a while, despite of or maybe because of, the rain.

Here are some of the rain walk photos, showing you how I spent that rainy day in the rain:

Vibrant hedge leafs

New pond parking space
Polkadot mushroom

Surrounded by rain. Walking in the rain. All day rain. It was when checking out Michelle Reuss’ post about her list journal pages (so pretty!) today that I saw another post called How I Spent a Rainy Day. I borrowed the title for this post, because I wanted to share these photos. They make me want to sing, in the rain. I just might, a little, because it’s raining today too.

How do you prefer to spend a rainy day?

  1. Lovely photos, Hanna! I really like your pink umbrella, as well as the photo of your feet–always fun! My other favorite is the one just below that, of the raindrops making little circles on the water’s surface with the leaves underneath…beautiful! When the rain is coming down hard outside, I love to hunker down indoors and think about how snug, warm, and DRY I am!

  2. I love a rainy day inside reading. Then when I’ve got cabin fever, walking out in it is the BEST! Then back in for hot chocolate and a view out the windows. I love how leaves are heavy with water but still light!

    I am putting your red leaves on my desktop! so pretty!

  3. I love all the autumn colors in these photos! so beautiful, and that mushroom is great, I’ve never seen anything like it.
    What a fabulous rainy day you had!

  4. Your photos look just like they’re from Oregon! Love the photos :}
    Here in Portland, OR, we have two seasons: summer and rain.
    I enjoy gardening in the rain, actually. I have one of those rice paddy hats that keeps the drops off my head.

  5. Gorgeous photos – thank you for sharing your day with us! I like to paint, and read, and sometimes snuggle up on the couch with my dvr! I have a question for you — would you send me your email address? My email is corspokoli(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks!
