How often do I see rainbows? Not often enough. Maybe once a year. But I always look for them, and when I finally see one, no matter how faint, I will stop everything and stand in awe.
As I was taking this picture, along with one other woman who had pulled over her bike, someone sneered at us: "seriously people, it’s only a rainbow, jeez". Mocking people for taking in a wonder of nature, has it really come to that? I did let her feel the lash of my tongue, in case you were wondering.
I really thought that was it, as in I couldn't possibly ask for more. It was raining and my camera was almost out of battery. I got home and looked out the window and BANG: double rainbows. Whaaaaat?
Yes, I talk to my camera, I say: "please, please, please let me get this, hold on just a tiny bit longer", as I was hurrying down to see if I could catch the Ladytree with a nice hat. Look at that magnificent tree. I love it so much.
By the way, I have Ladytree news for you, maybe I will fill you in tomorrow, and just let the rainbows shine for today. Besides I owe you like a hundred posts, with something like a day apart, haha.
The Copenhagen Lamp, retiring version.
There is no such thing as “only a rainbow”. Jeez.
