This scene was taken in Wales, but reminds me a bit of London right now – a never ending downpour of water in black and white.

London, also like this scene, is very pretty when wet. I should get out and shoot it more in those conditions, but when it comes to rain getting on the lens and requiring continual wiping I get lazy. It takes a lot of arm strength to keep polishing that glass between shots, and I find that strength is better put to use while in the pub lifting pints.

I attempting a photocrawl on Sunday, we spent it in the pub. I did the same last night, we spent it in the pub.

I’m hoping tonight will be different.

I think I’ll aim for two pubs.
