"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

Oktoberfest 2012 - Who Goes Out In The Rain?

I've had just enough time to...   go walking in the rain

Those who have company
Is not afraid of getting wet in the rain

The wheel also turns in stormy weather
Just the feeling is not the same, maybe better

The New Ghost will come a-visiting
As the Old Ghosts make way

I drink my sorrow in the rain
So no one see my tears mixed with the pain

When Life is short
Wet or dry, every day is a good day

Little girl crying in the rain
Why are you living me behind?

Little boy reply
No, not in stormy weather

A warm reassuring hand
Everything will be alright
Not minding the rain


Walking down the street,
Kicking cans,
Looking at the billboards,
The also-rans,
Summing up the people,
Checking out the race,
Doing what I'm doing,
Feeling out of place,

Walking, walking,
In the rain.

Walking in the rain - Grace Jones

    What is it like drinking in the rain - under dripping umbrellas, raincoats or defiantly bare against the cold drops? Maybe if you have sorrow to drown, it is best done in the rain so that no one can make out the expressions of the drinker. Except maybe if you look closely at the eyes and see the smiles are not there. But then you may think they are cause by the weather. Maybe, if you have a sad reason to drink, it is best done in the rain for then the crowd doesn't matter. Nothing does except the drink and the rain.

    What a lovely collection of candid rain shots Thou both in flickr and your blogg. Reading your words this time I couldn't but resist sharing one of my big favourite song lyrics for these images . I am sure at least one person could be feeling like this in this shot : )

    "I'll never let you see
    The way my broken heart is hurtin' me
    I've got my pride and I know how to hide
    All my sorrow and pain
    I'll do my cryin' in the rain

    If I wait for cloudy skies
    You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
    You'll never know that I still love you so
    Though the heartaches remain
    I'll do my cryin' in the rain

    Rain drops fallin' from Heaven
    Could never wash away my misery
    But since we're not together
    I look for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

    Some day when my cryin's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool but till then, darling
    You'll never see me complain
    I'll do my cryin' in the rain

    I'll do my cryin' in the rain
    I'll do my cryin' in the rain"

    Song: "I'll do my crying in the rain" by Everly Brothers

    Little girl holding a bright orange rose cries "Why are you leaving me behind?"
    "Don't leave me out there in the rain!"
    "I need your warmth."
    The little girl cries for all our needs.
    Only she has the courage to cry
    Because she is little.
