Blue #1

You should be shooting right now, he said. You should be shooting the sky and the sea, and how they’ve become one today. Like that Japanese photographer does.

The rain obliterated the view of Rio, the islands, Christ the Redeemer, and the little boats. At first meditative and cooling, the rain turned deadly, turning earth into mud and bringing homes down with it. The death toll topped 200 in the end. It didn’t stop raining for about four days; I was on a plane out of there after the first two.

    I wondered what the picture depicted, but after reading your comments a light bulb went up.
    I remember you saying that the rain was lovely at first but frightening after a short time.
