The Sun The Rain
One thing I really love about spring each year is how suddenly — with the first sunrays after a long, cold and lonely winter — streets are filling with people again. They seem to crawl out of their cosy homes just all at once, as if something was calling them.
Right now weather can’t yet decide if it wants to be spring already or keep on being winter, so we it’s quite unstable. On one of those days I managed to get out to the park just when it stopped raining to take some pictures. Then suddenly it started raining again and I was getting all wet, which I don’t really mind — but I was worried about my camera. So I decided it was best to go home again. And suddenly the sun came out while it was still raining, and the place in front of the old castle quickly filled with people; young boys and girls walking with their umbrellas, a mother with her friend and child stopped to watch the rainbow that had appeared at the sky, and the little kid waved its hand towards it, while some people crossed their way on their bikes and stopped and stared. I just had to stand there for some time, enjoying the rainbow, the sun, the rain, the people that were celebrating nature and life and how awesome this was, everybody stood there where a few moments before was no one and nothing to see and now we were all there, together, staring at the sky in admiration.
I wish to share this simple moment with you, so I uploaded some pictures I made just then. Enjoy and listen to some music: Ellen Allien – The Sun The Rain which I borrowed the title from. It’s one of my alltime favourite easy-summer-feeling-songs from a berlin electro artist I admire a lot. Let the sunshine in!
