Stormy Day during the Plum Rains
Lens: SMC Takumar 50/1.4 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Shanghai Aperture: F1.4

I've been very busy at work the last couple of weeks but have some time to spend on here this weekend !

Stormy day here, so all I could do was stand in the porch and look wistfully out .... with my dog at my side wishing she could play ball ! Totally washed out weekend

SMC Takumar 50/1.4 (except #2 with the CZJ Sonnar 135 at f5.6) - all at f1.4 and within 1 metre of my front door ! The hole in the fence is where my dog (Xiao Fei Dao - meaning Small Flying Dagger) chewed a couple of pieces off !

Thanks Bob.

She is a really friendly dog, loves people. Though you would not want to be too close to her today - as you can maybe tell she was very wet with that inimitable wet doggie aroma !

Nice pics, perfectly capture the "feel" of a rainy weekend. BTW, could you send some of that rain to Texas?

A good series of shots that tell a sad tale.

Thank you Downunderman - she certainly wasn't too happy with the constant rain !

Cheers Jer - No ! We need it too, the Yangtze was down 10M on it's normal level ! Worst drought for 150 years.

Thanks EagleM !
