Afternoon – Castlebay

Filed under: Mike — sojournerphoto @ 23:34

Just back from a couple of weeks away and thought this might raise a smile or two. I’ll look back over what I’ve missed in the next few days.



  1. Ah, but the sun was probably shining within the hour.

    Whether it intends to or not, this conveys that slight feeling of alienation on arriving at a new destination in bad weather. You have to get out of the car and make sense of your surroundings in the rain.

  2. Rain on a window always interests me, interesting patterns are always to be found.

    The background out of focus scene has enough information for us to now what is there.

  3. This is my kind of holiday, fantastic. That building is the tourist information office, and it is shut.

    I like this for the stories I associate it with.

  4. Conveys well a mood and place — and, of course, the weather.

  5. The building is the tourist information and it was shut!

    John, it wasn’t the ontent – I liked the geometry of the Volvo and the raindrops – but it was our first day and the weather did make getting out and orienting ourselves more difficult than it might have. The folowing days were indeed sunny.

  6. Much the better for having the car intrusions.

    There is something wierdly facelike about the whatever-it-is top right.

  7. I get that sense of stories, too: expectant wainting fo the break in the weather or resignation at the interminableness.

  8. A face-like arcade-like sprite. It’s inclusion does force me to look just as hard back in to that background and try and work something out of it. But that’s of lesser concern than the attempt to make patterns out of the much ‘cleaner’ rain drops up front.
