    What an unusual picture! It looks almost like a stained glass window… well-captured.

    Thank you. It is taken from a house opposite. This sight is not unusual here, I would say it is a bit too usual. 🙂

    I like this photo. I always like your rainy photos. They give me comfort–people elsewhere in the world live good and happy lives in places where it rains . . . often.

    I heard a story today–or parts of it anyway–that explained that Danes were exceptionally contented people because they live in a “cozy country.” Hmm. I am wary of all generalizations. Still, you often show me a cozy place where a person can be contented.

    This photo reminds me of the community of townhouses where Rob the Firefighter and the Lady Alicia and my grand-dogs live, except that theirs is only two stories high. I like visiting them very much. It is cozy in a hip sort of way.

      Gerry, what a wonderful long comment, thank you for that.

      Now and then there are rumors telling that Danes are very happy, sometimes it is even told that we are the most happy people among all the people who have been asked. I am sure that many Danes wonder what this is all about.
      The other day, I saw an interview that might give an answer, here it is: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=3832689n&tag=mncol;lst;8

      If the reason is that we have less expectations, as it is said in the video, that could possibly be right. Anyway, rainy weather is a good excuse to stay inside and have coffee and cakes, which (usually) makes people happy (or at least not unhappy), – and we have a lot of rain. 🙂

    An artistic and poetic tribute to rain seen behind a window. I like very much the slightly blurry look. Lovely mood in this image, giiid.

    giiid, looks just like a painting and the lights from the building across gives it a warm touch.

      I was lucky that the light was turned on for a short moment. It is the light at the steps. Thank you Ginger.

    Looks like a painting.

      That day wasn´t really cold, but we have had frost last night, so today is cooold! I have to go and check your blog for next assignment deadline, “autumn” it was, right?

    I really like this picture, Birgitte. The lights, the rain’s abstract texture really warm up the gloomy day. You nailed it!

      I am glad to know, Erika, I like it too,- I remember the good feeling of being inside in such weather, when I see the photo. Thank you for commenting.

    Have a lovely Sunday, giiid, as sunny and mild as mine over here. An autumnal wink to say I am still here even if last week was very rough !

    • Giiid on

      You are right, now and then there just isn´t enough of whatever is needed to make an interesting post, – time, energy, inspiration, …. Thank you for sending me this post, Isa, it helps. 🙂

    So different and lovely photo. I mean that somebody else might had waited until the rain stops. I agree with Reggie when saying that it is like stained glass.

    • Giiid on
