Earlier this week, on an overcast and drizzly day, I decided to take my camera for a walk and snap some pictures. I figured that because it was a grey day, I'd experiment with the monochrome setting on my Canon so that the images would hopefully capture what the day felt and looked like to me. And just for the record, I have a great affection for grey and rainy days. Most people find them depressing, however, I find them calming, comforting, and cozy. Additionally, I find them visually beautiful and inspiring.
I know this sounds odd, but I can take days and days (even weeks) of grey weather. I think I would be a prime candidate to live in a place such as Seattle, where grey and drizzly days are frequent. I've even been told that I would enjoy living in parts of the UK because grey and rainy days are common.
Yes, call me strange but I adore grey and Gothic-looking days!
Please allow me to share some images of a beautiful monochrome day in Philadelphia.
Have a beautiful weekend everyone!
