Rain, rain...

...& rain. the past 3 days we had quite some rain. its not too cold, during the night its even too warm, sometimes. ah well, the weekend was really warm, with no rain at all!
above is in new york, a while back already (i think it was in october?), when it suddenly started raining during a protest (it  was the slut walk protest, actually). real new yorkers often tell everyone, whether you want to hear it or not, that new yorkers wear black, black and nothing but black. even their umbrellas. i think thats just bullcrap.... just like any other place, there are people who are dressed in all black, but there are also some that like colors, as you can see here. besides, dont most people have a black coat, just because its easiest and fits with anything else you wear.. ?

Very nice photo! I like the lines and the colours. The weather is a never ending story here, some sun now but still cold, each day is a surprise.

When it rains in NYC it can really rain. The second the rain starts street vendors appear out of nowhere with cheap umbrellas for sale.

I like this! The colors pop and the lines are interesting.

I wear black because I'm also always wearing black dog fur.

This shot could be anywhere in Sydney as well. I agree with you about the colour thing: all in our mind. We are a most diverse lot, we hoomans.
