Spring Rain 2 #1 - March 30, 2012 - Uptown, Chicago, IL
We had a glorious rain this morning. A little lightening and thunder, a little hail. The light was subdued and the street lights were still on from the night before. Under normal circumstances I do not do Pop Art colors, I abhor trendy photo treatments. But this and the 3 others in the series is a exception. I have always admired impressionist paintings of Paris in the rain. This is my homage to Paris in the rain.
Chicago is a sister city to Paris and have been replacing our American, utilitarian looking street lights and bus stop shelters with French designed and manufactured fixtures. I did not like the european frilliness at first but I am getting used to it.
