Rainy Days and Mondays... ~ April 24 [6]

New London, Minnesota

Yesterday was warm and sunny. Today is continuously overcast with rain and sleet... Rainy Days and Mondays indeed...

Rainy Days And Mondays
Words and Music by: Paul Williams & Roger Nichols (From the Carpenters album of the same name)

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

What I've got they used to call the blues
Nothin' is really wrong
Feelin' like I don't belong
Walkin' around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me.

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it's all about
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Wow. This is really neat. :) I want to reach out and wipe the water off my screen. :-)

Excellent shot with the caption.

Excellent shot to convey the mood of the day.

If you take the verse:

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me.

And think of God instead of a partner, the song works even better with the image.
Was that the intention? Anyway, GMV.

A beautiful shot & song.

The rain/sleet was so bad here drivers pulled over because they couldn't see through the screen! In view/in spite of the weather, this is a really great shot. Chris

I don't like Mondays. But I like rain and this image. And the song, reminds me
of those days.

Karen Stuebing25-Apr-2006 09:33
The window makes a nice frame and filter for this rainy day capture. Nice color and dof and love the water droplets. Nice lyrics to accompany it.
Sharon Rogers25-Apr-2006 08:43

Marek Kacprzak25-Apr-2006 06:28
splendid focus on the rain drops... one can almost hear them
Dan Chusid25-Apr-2006 05:41
There ARE some good benefits to rain
besides quenching nature's thirst.
Dallas Hyatt25-Apr-2006 05:10
Dude. You're trippin'. Love the detail. Voted.
Bryan Murahashi25-Apr-2006 04:20
Really nicely shot.
Dennis Hoyne25-Apr-2006 04:03
Neat image, and quite the change from yesturdays. Whatever happened to Paul Williams?
Gary Winters25-Apr-2006 03:50
Neat job on the rain drops, Greg. And i agree with the thoughts about photography and the weather -- so why can't i get good shots in bad weather?
Karen Leaf25-Apr-2006 03:42
Keep talking Greg, someone will hear, sometime :)
Kathy Pedersen25-Apr-2006 00:52
Wonderfully seen!
Cindi Smith24-Apr-2006 23:32
Great idea to take it with the windows being hit by rain! I love this shot!
Guest 24-Apr-2006 22:56
This is really good. I really love that kind of image, when they're well done. and this one is. The sharp drops and lines of water are very dynamic. the blurred house and landscape behind look very good too.
