April A-Z : New York in the Rain

New York City : a city that requires patience and a lot of waiting in order to get through it but that's not necessarily a bad thing
— According to me

  1. Lissa, I love your pictures, especially the lady crossing the street. Is she wearing flip-flops?
    My then fiancée and I spent four days in NYC in 2003. It was pouring for four days straight, so this is EXACTLY how I remember the city!
    Great definition, too!

    1. do you mean #3 or #4? #3 is flip flops & #4 is just flat shoes

      I like New York in the rain, it's just beautiful.

  2. PS: I noticed you picked ten pictures 👍🏻

    1. my lists are mostly in 7 or 10 with the occasional odd numbers but mostly it's 10.

      have a lovely day.

  3. Wow! These are so amazing captures. I am having a tough time ranking them. Way to go!!

  4. Although they are all beautiful images, I liked number 1 and number 5 the best. Thanks for sharing your wonderful photography.

  5. These shots are fantastic!

  6. As much as I love the rain and NYC, I really do not like it when it's raining and I'm visiting NYC. Or any city for that matter. You've shared some beautiful shots in this post! :)

  7. These are some beautiful photos, the last day of my holiday to New York it rained and it was a very different experience in the city.
    Today on my A-Z of my Favourite Things, N is for the Ninja Book Swap.

  8. Nice pictures. The summer before I started high school I went on a class trip to NYC. The day we were suppose to visit Central Park it rained all day. Even though I have returned to NYC 3 more times since then I've still not really seen Central Park (I walked through parts of it but not seen any of the attractions inside like the zoo). http://www.girl-who-reads.com/2017/04/nonfiction-review-neurodiversity-by.html

  9. Great pics! I like the rain drop covered leaf the best. All that rain makes me what to reach for a cozy blanket and some hot chocolate.

  11. wonderful captures.
    mostly I thought of how the rain cleanses and creates a fresh start.

  12. The photos are stunning!
    You have a great eye!
    I wish I had more time to scroll through your posts...

  13. I'm visiting from A to Z. I grew up in New York City, and rarely go back, but your photos were so beautiful that you may inspire me to. #5 especially, but I also liked (in a strange way) the last one, with the ginkgo leaf on the ground.
