Before the rain

I liked the light in the moment just before the rain, when the sun peeked out from behind the dark cloud.

Not so keen on the moment after the rain. But it didn't last long.

Just before this, I took some pics of a crane in the street. As I walked away, a bloke comes up to me and asks "scuse me pal, is there something wrong with the crane?"

"How do you mean?" I ask.

"Just wondered why you were taking photos," he replies, suspiciously.

"Er, I just liked the way it was catching the light," I say. "Taking pictures, it's er, sort of a ... hobby."

You could practically hear him thinking 'nutter', as he backed away. And who could blame him, really.
