Flowing at night.

We had a huge storm. A lot of New Orleans was flooded because the amount of rainfall overwhelmed the drainage pumps. But, not Uptown. All that construction. The work I’ve been complaining about for the last three years.  Well. It paid off. Wet streets, but no heavily accumulated water.

The rain fell so hard, and for so long, that we did not go outside for much of the day. It’s smart to stay inside when somewhere near eight inches of rain falls in three hours.

By nightfall the dogs needed a walk. Yeah. Sure. They have a doggie door and a place to go when nature calls. Even during the lightest rain they are weather wimps. They refuse to go out.

They went out at around 8am. They stayed indoors all day long. By dusk I wanted them to go out. So, out for a walk we went. Nothing was falling from the sky, but the streets were wet and the grass and soil was soaked to the point of sponginess. We went to one of our usual places where there is kind of a water feature.

That’s where I made this picture.

Night Water. That’s what I’m calling it. Sometimes this place is almost dry. Not last night. Water was moving. Sparkling. Twinkling. I wasn’t even sure I could make this picture in such low light. But…

I did.
