There's something special about rain. The temperature drops, the pressure changes, blue skies turn grey, and the world falls into darkness. Water actually falls from the sky. It's no wonder that it has such a profound effect on human psychology, shaping our mood and even our art.
I looked through my window at the small garden, now drenched and green...
...but as the world fell into darkness under the storm clouds, and with Porcupine Tree's "Fear Of A Blank Planet" album playing, it was only natural that the photographs became less realistic and representational, and more figurative, abstracted and ethereal.
The softness, the swaying movement of the lush vegetative forms, and the hazy, blurry magic of the world in rain, became the goal.
