Wednesday Whim - Romantic Rains

 all images via My Modern Met via Christophe Jacrot

We had our first start of the rainy season yesterday night in the Bay Area (including lightening!) so I have my Hunter rain boots out from the closet and ready to wear. I've never heard someone literally state he/she enjoys being caught in the rain but, I admit I find something soothing about hearing and seeing the rain fall (and the images that can be captured). 

These images from French photographer, Christophe Jacrot, help capture exactly what I adore about the rain in cinematic form. The reflections from the water, the colors of the various umbrellas and the environment that comes with rain are all represented in these photographs. It's romantic, moving, peaceful, hectic and beautiful all at once.


How do you feel about the rain? Hate it? Love it? Neutral?

  1. I agree. There is something so peaceful about the rain - which I do adore when I'm cozied up at home and listening to it - but I'd prefer to not be out in it, especially when it's windy!

  4. these pictures definitely warm my heart! i love the rain and dark stormy days since it means snuggling up with a book by the fireplace and sipping hot chocolate. it's finally cooling off in LA (down to a whopping 70 degrees!). hope you're having a fabulous week.

  7. Gorgeous imagery. I didn't even realize it rained until I woke up this morning and the roads were wet. There is definitely a colder breeze in the air, even in south bay.

  8. Wow, these are amazing. Makes me slightly appreciate getting stabbed with umbrellas on NYC streets this morning.

  13. Love those gorgeous shots you used--they so capture the feeling! I love it in small doses, but not so much as a lifestyle, and have experienced both. Hope you're having a lovely week!

  14. I don't love the rain, but it is nice every once and awhile and it is sure better than snow!

  18. We're having rainy weather where I live here in Australia too - and I'm loving it! I love how it gives everything a cosy, snuggly feel! Although, that's not so good for trying to get up in the mornings... :)

    Life etc

  23. Those photos are so beautiful! Photographs in the rain always look so pretty and romantic. In real life, that could not be further from the truth. I HATE the rain! :) The only positive is that it's a good excuse to wear cute rain gear!
