I just love photos taken through windows with raindrops on. :-) Those give me such a nice feeling about being inside where itís dry and warm as opposed to the wet, could and windy outside. I also love how such pictures get blurry and difficult to see whatís on the other side of the window. Leaves so much to oneís imagination. At this picture the pink and white in the middle makes me wonder what I see Ė just now I like to think of it as a child being walked home from play school, just got off the tram and waiting to cross, home in a minute where pizza and Friday television programmes for children are waiting. :-) I like the colours on this picture, all the rain and how youíve chosen to have the tram in the middle and stretching all over (from left to right). Iím a bit unsure about all the white sky Ė I think there is too much of it/drawing too much attention, but on the other hand it makes the picture more bright and promising (the weather is getting better).

Caroline's link

Jamal, I think we all tend to see the world with different eyes when we have a camera in our hands. But you even more so.

Looking at the last one I had a vision of you sitting in your car twiddling your thumbs (I wish I knew a French translation for that, but I think "sitting bored in your car" might be easier to understand), when you spotted this opportunity.

But, having just read Caroline's comments, I've remembered a link she once gave to her favourite train journey pic. Did you perhaps get this idea from there, as I seem to remember it involved rain on a window.

Whatever, from what I can remember of it, yours are better as I think you can make out a little bit more, without being too much, of the background.

Keep your ideas coming!

..thanks for your inputs guys!! Actually Chris, i didn't know about the link you were refering to, i was just taking the kids to a museum and i know there is a parc there so i took my camera along, on the way there the rain start pouring and i liked the almost painted blurry site from the car so snapped the camera and made couple shots. I was pleased with the results since i like anything that looks like a painting. Now i want to explore this view under the rain at night and hopefuly will come out with something good!! thanks for the encouragements :))

Best to all..
