Some people feel the rain, others just get wet! I ask you, do you love rain? I adore rain, to me rain symbolizes romance, an expression of love.
“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
As rain descends in Manhattan it adorns the city dressing it like an angel. The wet grass, puddles on the road, the smell of rain in the air, grey stormy clouds, everything flawless. Walking around the city in the rain with my camera and an umbrella (to protect me from getting wet) I clicked pictures of the landscape, streets, buildings, gardens and everything interesting. Here are ten pictures of the day.
As a current New Yorkery, I feel Central Park East gives a forest like feel. The lush green trees, rocky terran, and meandering water streams. Gorgeous ! Jogging around the path (just following my instinct) listening to the humming of numerous birds in the park I ended up in front of this beautiful view in lthe picture above. I stood there admiring the scene for as long as I could. The reflection of the dense trees in the clear water stream formed a breathtaking mirage as if a painter has worked day and night to create an unrealistic work of art.
Sunday morning, I woke up to a bright sunny day and a heart- melting smile from my love. Sunshine, plans to be outdoors. But in a couple of hours it got windy and overcast. I sigh! Good or not so good weather, I and my husband were up for a game of tennis. After a healthy breakfast we were off on our bikes to the River Side Clay courts for an intense serve and volley game. The clay courts by the Hudson River, it’s the most majestic view I have ever seen, experienced, with the convenience to play tennis every single day. It is such a luxury!
On the road, as I pedaled my bicycle, the cold wind pierced my face and my hair were a slight mess. In minutes we were at the courts ready for an hour of tennis. The view of the Hudson was breathtaking, as if straight out of a dream. As I was lost in its beauty I knew I had my click of the day- The George Washington Bridge overlooking the Hudson River with the ships only adding character to my picture.
