Wintery Shades of Gray

It has rained for about two-and-a-half days straight.
 I love the humidity with the mild air and would 
be happy if this would be our winter, but sadly,
temperatures that have been in the fifties are dropping -- 
Boo! back into the thirties. The ground is sodden
with large pools of standing water in 
the Coke Field and elsewhere. 
Nearby, the sidewalk was clotted with leaves
faded into suitably dire shades of gray.
I liked the way the leaves related to each other, creating
interesting patterns of negative and positive space,
and especially enjoyed the swirls and whorls
the rain water made as it flowed amid the leaves.

You know, they end up looking like paintings in this way.

Thanks, William. Thanks what I thought, too, when I saw them, but then again, so do the photos from yesterday's post, and the day before, and the day before that. On and on. I just can't help myself. ;-)
