PS: Taken today in Swansea with heavy winds and rain lashing through the coast.
After #StormDoris it’s #StormEwan now 🙄.
It has been raining since yesterday night but at least the winds haven’t been bad so far (touch wood) and my wheelie bins haven’t made any attempts at their escape (touch wood again).
Last time I was here in London, the weather was mixed. Even though it was said to be the onset of Summer I did not feel like it. But I got to experience the proper English Summer (or the heat wave) this time. When I was wondering if it would even rain someday, there it was, one evening. But not like this in the photograph. It was just a drizzle. I took the photograph of the window pane with my phone, but since I wished for a proper rain to curb the heat, I added the rain effect using Pixlr 😉
I always love looking at the sea, the lake, any water bodies. It is very calming. While we were at the Tower Bridge and looking at the passing boats and the waves of the Thames, I took these two shots of a boat carrying the cargo. Thought it would make a good GIF. So used GIF Creator and here is the effect.

Why don’t we drive in the rain
Straight to the eye of the hurricane
Go for a ride in the driving rain – Paul McCartney
Another favorite of mine. I loved the fact that even the footpath was part of the artwork here.
