Waiting for Henri

Yesterday, while hurricane Henri was making landfall south of us and its northern edge was dispensing everything from light mist to moderate downpour, we decided to take a drive to the coast to see what havoc he was causing with regard to waves.  Not much it turned out. Henri had softened to a tropical storm by now and having made landfall somewhere in Massachusetts it wasn't having much effect on the Maine coast. Nonetheless, we got plenty wet and I found some fun scenes to photograph.

I like doing these semi-abstract images shot through a rainy window but they do get old fast. There's only so much you can take of blurry colors fronted by raindrops. Nonetheless, I didn't have many chances to do this in San Diego so I graciously accepted the opportunity.

Quick explanation for the sign: There is a Larry Bird autographed basketball encased in plexiglass on display in the shop. Celtic fandom runs deep here.

I enjoy the abstract images, also! You’ve moved from the west coast to the east coast and see the difference between them. I like this series of images, Joe.

It's funny you mention how the semi-abstract images shot through a rainy window get old fast because those are the ones I was most immediately drawn to. I don't believe I've tried that before, but I do enjoy seeing it done and yours are beautifully done, with my favorites being Rainman and Sweatshirt Shop. How long does it take you to get to the coast? Is that something you see doing often? I love the Maine coastlines.
How wet did you get taking the photos? Especially enjoy the first two still life pics and the Safe Harbor.
Great shots. It's rare we (Florida) send a Hurricane or Tropical Storm on up your way so glad it wasn't devastating nd just a good mid Summer soaking,

I like the Matisse like quality of the rain through the foggy car window shots. Could Matisse have been inspired by rain fog through his buggy window?

Pretty gutsy move there, Joe! Glad to know that things are mostly still intact. The "sweatshirt shop" photo reminds me of an old Windows logo.
