Many of you are very familiar already with my 5th Floor Window scenes, most specifically sunsets. I guess the 5th Floor Window will be known for sunsets. But there's a lot more with it. If only I am a writer, i can make a lot of stories inspired by my 5th Floor Window. What about the drama of real people i chanced upon once-in-a while! The drama of birds are there too, just this morning I saw one dead pied fantail at the corner of my ledge, with head looking up at me! I will post its picture in a later post. The only thing i haven't seen there yet is an airplane diving down, knock on wood! But i see lots of airplanes and helicopters, and oh yes the jets leaving white smokey trails, they are all there. And I hope one of these days, i can capture a flight of a UFO, a real one! But who knows I might already have seen one, just that i didn't know how to look. And one more thing, i still have to watch the real meteor showers from my 5th floor window.
And now I have something for you, the rains!
This is one of the more familiar views of my normal window scenes
...also one of the normal sunsets!
Then suddenly i got this hazy sunset view despite the bright sun there at the horizon!
my sunset view now becomes a surreal painting
Big drops of rains so suddenly fall, a bit slanting from left due to strong wind
This small hut owned by an old man got a thorough drenching. I know the man still use firewood in cooking his food, and he dries his chopped wood near this hut. Sometimes his area gets flooded after heavy rains. I hope he has enough firewood inside his hut to cook his food.
these banana plants at the back of the old man's hut will benefit from the sudden downpour
this fruit tree, housing many birds and insects will also welcome this rain beautifully
this photo suddenly looks like an old picture from an old photo album
...and my basil, kangkong, orchid and ampalaya plants at the window ledge are certainly happy!
That rainfall only lasted for 15 min. It didn't come with any announcement at all, like cloudy skies or drizzles. The sun is hot there in the horizon as if it is just a very ordinary day. It just happened suddenly. And just like how it appeared, it also suddenly went off, just like that. I am awed, but most of us liked it. I love having a 5th floor window!
