365 - 72 - Swingin' in the Rain

It's been a very rainy day in Houston, and we have this lightpost right outside my door¦ Naturally, I tried to be like Gene Kelly and hop up on it. Naturally, it was slippery. Naturally, I got scared that I would crack my skull open on the concrete so I stopped trying to strike the "Singing in the Rain" pose.

 

We're left with my own rendition, entitled "Swingin' in the Rain." Much less dangerous, and much easier. Normally, the blurred subject thing doesn't work for me, but today it just seems right? Maybe because it's like the water is washing me away, I don't know.

 

Any neighbors who might've been peeking out their windows probably think I'm crazy. Get used to it, folks, I've got 294 more days of this thing!
