Wednesday, looking east up Virginia Street from McGee Street. A pretty brisk late-afternoon shower opened up just as I walked home from downtown Berkeley.

  1. Both are stunningly beautiful. You got a really good shot of the rainbow, too.
    It looks like there’s a natural filtering in the second one. I always find myself compelled to go outside when that weather phenomenon occurs and marvel at how it makes the colors look so different.

  2. hanks, Marie. If I had any artistic skill, I suppose I’d be out there trying to paint or draw these scenes. On the other hand, what always attracts me is the quality of the light, and that’s so ephemeral that you’d have to be a master to even hint at it. “Hint at it” is all most photographs manage to do, too; I think of the shots I take as sort of visual notetaking.
