A series of short videos, or, movements that …moved me.
Yes, you read correct: RAIN
…and yes, it rained in …my last MbM post too!
…and no, don’t do this!!!!!!
…don’t try to photograph the lights of a moving car in front of you while driving at the same time …in the rain!!!!!!
Yes, I did just that! I couldn’t resist. My eyes were dazzled by the melting lights and it was such fun 😜 …but, as I say DON’T try it!
FYI I did not cause any accident or delay in the traffic! 😉
This time, it’s ‘Victoria’, the storm above us. It made its entrance with an abundance of lightning and thunder [Hera did not appreciate this bad temper one bit!],
but, trust me to find something good in any situation! 😉
I mean, take a look at those melting lights…
So, here is
Driving In The Rain
with the lovely sound of raindrops hitting metal
[sounds more like plastic, but take my word for it, it’s metal!]
…and the sound of the flashlight ..for a left turn!
My photo crop while taking the rest of my journey home …safely!
Can you blame me?
Enjoy a beautiful Thursday
Don’t drive and take pictures …or videos!!!!!
This series of posts is linked to “Earth Nerve Net“.
Sometimes the eye captures an image, sometimes a movement and others a movement with sound. Most of these “Moved by Motion” posts are with sound on, essential for a fuller experience, hence, no [other] music to accompany them. I hope you enjoy.

Reblogged this on Momentary Lapse Of Sanity.
Thank you for the reblog! 🙂
Beautiful. I’m glad you survived it.
Ah, ha…. yes, not a brilliant idea shooting while driving in the city! But those lights were too good not to take the chance! 😉
Terrific shots! A few years back I got a helmet and drilled a hole in it to mount my DVD camera so I could film while riding the bicycle. A Mickey Mouse contraption, pre cell phone. I just discovered your new format and all this new material. Great!!!
Ah, creative innovator!!!!! I’d love to see these! However driving and handling a phone in order to take shots, is really not a good idea!!! 😉 🙂
I did it recently in New York State road. Not such good shots and I nearly went off the road two times.
Oh-oh…. that’s what I meant!!!! Most of mine where taken on a red light however on a video recording, the light turned green (which was mesmerizing through the rain drops) so I kept recording while driving and my phone fell off my hands! The recording from that point onwards gets black with …creative swearing in the background! 🤣🤣😉🤣😉🤣
Amazing pictures – what an eye you’ve got!
Ah, thank you, Ken …it’s the rain, magical rain! 😉
Rich and deep textures! We now have very strict distracted driving laws in Ontario so if we tried that here we’d be slapped with a heavy fine and license suspension! Some, I heard, have even been charged for drinking coffee at a red light!
I think it’s fair to have strict laws about that. It’s a distraction and it could end up in an accident. Of course, there ought to be people judging and not machines, meaning that drinking coffee at a red light should probably go unpunished. Anyway, I’m not repeating that! 😉
There have been a lot of accidents up (over in your case) here. Probably due to the incredible population surge in this city. This morning it took me twice as long to get somewhere as it did just a couple of years ago. Traffic… 🚗🚓🚕🚑🚒🚚🙂
…same here!!!!! A normally ten minute drive may take up to one hour depending on the traffic! 😱
Still, it must be wonderful living in Athens. I think that’s where you folks live, right? I can only imagine the cool places in your vicinity! 🌫️
Yes, it’s true, there are lovely places around but we’d rather be somewhere outside the city – more quiet …by the sea preferably! 😉
I guess a lot of people feel that way. Me, I’m coming to terms with city life. And as the song goes… Thinking is the best way to travel! 😇
well, my motto too! 😉 🙂
I know… But I get your drift. Sometimes I miss Georgian Bay dreadfully. A story for another day…🌟🌅🌤️
SO, driving and photoing in the rain! AHA!
I was listening to Atomic Rooster on Oannes blog, while reading this. The rain actually sounded great with the music, as it is quite minimalistic.
I went back, to listen better and couldn’t take my eyes off the video. The lead singer eating a sandwich during the performance is a hoot! I’m following the blog. The email for my GLAM blog came up, so I went with it. It says I am Resa Swork. It was supposed to be Resa’s Work. Google decided I was Resa Swork. I couldn’t use Resa Swork for my work, so I used it for my GLAM blog.

OH! also, you said you had tried 3 times to comment on my blog before it worked. The first 2 were in the SPAM folder. I freed them. I’m over on Art Gowns right now, so will delete them when I get back there.
Yes, I know, I got the hubby warning about driving and photographing! 😬
That sandwich gets me every time! How he can perform like that and casually enjoy his sandwich is beyond me!!!!!!! I love that song and obviously that voice!
Resa Swork?!!!!!!! Honestly…. I’ll go visit!!!!! Swork……… 🤣🙄😒🤪🤭🥴🙃😂 google ey?!!!!!!!!!
Sending Sunday kisses and love!!!!!❤❤❤❤❤❤🌺❤🥰😍😘😍🥰❤🌺❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
These are insanely cool…. And I won’t give you skata for what you did, though I should…
Ah, thank you, Dale and don’t worry, I got the warning by hubby a comment below! 😉 😬xoxoxo
I am sure you did 😉
But let me remind you rule number one: DRIVE SAFE!!!
Wow! What a fabulous set of images. Love and blessings from North Wales. Safe driving xx
Oh… thank you so much!!!! Thankfully I don’t make it a habit driving and photographing! 😉😘😘😘
Lovely abstracts, Marina!
Thank you, my friend. So glad you liked them! 🙂
Great captures !
Ah, thank you!!! 🙂
Ah, thank you, Rebecca!!!! 🙂 xoxoxoxo
These are beautiful – otherworldly; like looking at planets up close in the solar system!
Ah, I didn’t think of that but you’re so right! Thank you for that perspective …and the compliment! 🙂 xoxoxo
You’re welcome 🙂 xx
An artist’s eyes simply don’t rest … even while driving! At least you safely made it home! 🙂
Ah, yes!!!!! It would actually be very funny having a camera recording me at the time! There were instances when my camera would slip off my hands and others when the preceding car would drive off as soon as I’d focused on the light… which I can assure you, the raindrops were not the only thing you’d hear 🤬🤬🤬🤬!!!!!!! 😉 Yamas, my friend! 🙂
I agree with you these are stunning 💜
Oh, so glad you do!!!! Have s lovely day! 🤗😘
And you too Marina 💜
