Rainsong on a summer day




Listen. Outside it is raining. This is not the fine rain of summer that falls warm from the sky. This is winter rain. The clouds mourn for the passing of sunshine. Harsh, cold. The sky is weeping. Inside we find ways to be dry, away from the noise and dust of the builders. On the bed we shine like the memory of fire, like pools of sunshine fallen to earth. We watch and we wait and we dream.

Steve was looking at Eqqus by Tim Flach. She was wondering whether She could take Tim Flach's way of looking at horses and apply to photographing cats.
The rain stopped, the sun came out, and then again the rain fell heavy. With it all a strong wind blows.
