Towards a Dark Night ~ Brooklyn, NY

If you only walk on sunny days you’ll never reach your destination ~ Paulo Coelho

Ominous thunderclouds, the roar of thunder, and the crackle of lighting. New York’s heat wave finally broken.

On these summer days, I can’t imagine not being near the cool breeze of the river. Today though, lunch was interrupted.

~Willing the ducks back~

~ Ducks aren’t willing ~

~Back to their East River home ~

~ A simple lunch, before the rain ~

~ East River Ferry headed from Williamsburg to Midtown Manhattan~

~ Watching the storm brew; listening to the thunder rumbles of an upset sky ~

~ Final moments at the shoreline ~~ As the raindrops started to fall and lightning zigzagged over Gotham, the Park was pronounced ‘closed’ for safety reasons ~

~ Wind gusts and a torrential downpour ~

~ Life goes on despite the rain ~

~ On the rooftop ~

~ Dark Night ~

    • A moody tone 🙂 A change from the sun, light, and heat! We finally got rain Karen! The sushi was really good – salmon especially. Enjoy it tomorrow maybe? Thanks Karen!

    • Adrian! Aren’t they so Gotham-esque?! Now, what time is it in the UK? Sushi for brekkie? It is really good – and my hubby made some iced Matcha infused milk to complement. (that is, Matcha mixed with soy milk!) thank you!

  1. Love the photos with the girl and the birds (btw, I believe they are Canadian geese 🙂 ). Another lovely post, in a different note than usual. But rain and clouds have their own charm, haven’t they? Especially during summer.

    • Hi Sorin, I would be wary to photograph in the rain but now I enjoy it for that very reason – their charm. They set their own mood. That little girl was so sweet – she was so upset that the Canadian geese(!) walked away from her! I am glad you enjoyed this post. Thank you 🙂

    • I love the quote too! Especially on days like yesterday and today, as it is raining. I have found I am enjoying the rain alot more because I’m more accepting of it. Sounds crazy but true! Thank you!

  2. Lovely post! I love those kind of days when it suddenly cools down and the thunder starts rumbling, then the fresh air smells so nice 🙂 Your lunch looks amazing! 🙂
