...falls mainly where I live.

Good photos! i will be on Asturias this weekend, hope no rain.
Saludos de Las Palmas.
Regards from Las Palmas.
Really nice! The reflection of water on the dark streets is really beautiful
Hey Colin, thanks for this great BW series. Though I don't like rain at all, do you?
Tomorrow it's 26 C and a bit of wet, I can live with that.
I just can't stand the rain!
Thanks Herman. I don't mind rain (remember I'm English) or I wouldn't still be living here after 41 years!
Hi Colin, thanks for your message. I'm Dutch, my best friend (my wife) is German, our cat Siamese is Frysian. We all love warm weather. How's weather in the southern part of Spain?
Hello Herman, i recommend you, canary island, Lanzarote, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, sun and relax...
Herman, The forecast for Malaga (Costa del Sol) for tomorrow is 28ºC and sunny. Here it's 18ºC and rain.
I shouldn't have tempted fate by bringing up this topic. It's been pouring down nonstop since last night. Between 21.00 and 8.00 this morning the airport recorded 97 litres/m2. There's flooding everywhere, roads are closed, a restaurant has almost been washed into the sea, a campsite on the coast has caravans floating around.... The province is on orange alert (one before red). The news has just said we can expect up to 50 litres/m2/hour this afternoon and evening. At the moment it's absolutely pouring down. Sunny Spain?
I'm particularly fond of number 3. There's something about that man's head turning look as he's walking.
I don't have photoshop, but this is a case were I sort of wish that the woman with the white jacket was off camera. I don't know if you can do this Colin, or if you'd even want to... I think this photograph might be even stronger without us knowing, or assuming we know, what this fellow was looking at with such seeming intensity. The question of what caught his interest and the black and white treatment, plus the architecture, the lighting and the wet stone pavement... What do you think?
nice set of images
First, I love the shots, and BW is a great choice.
I agree with BBW about the 3rd one. If you were to crop just to the left of the woman in white, we would be wondering what the guy is looking at. that sense of mystery can really give a photograph some life. It doesn't always work out, but maybe worth a try...
Sorry to hear about the flooding...
BBW, Your wish is my command. Do you prefer this version? I do. Many thanks.
You're a magician!! Yes, I do very much, Colin.
I'm convinced that once I get my new computer, I'll be getting a hold of Photoshop Elements to be able to do something like this so that if I were ever to have such a great shot but needed to remove a little something, I could do it.
I'm happy that you feel it works better for you.
BBW, before splashing out on Photoshop, try downloading Photoscape 3.5. It's free and very comprehensive. In fact I used its Clone Stamp to retouch this photo.
Does it work on a Mac with Snow Leopard? Of course I can check this out myself. Thank you for the recommendation, and please call me "BB". I should have just used that as my "handle" here.
Lovely pictures here. Nice glimmers of light reflecting on the wet tiles (aren't they lethal when they get wet?!) and lots of interest in the streets. I notice that Malaga had drizzle yesterday although the forecast is good :smile: Certainly hope you get some better weather soon!
Great set of images. I love B&W!
Where are the pictures?
Strangely, I can't see any pictures in this thread. Are they already wiped out?
It seems they are missing. I will contact the original poster, Colin, to see what has happened and report back. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Nomad!
