Not so gloomy

I was watching tennis on television on Wednesday afternoon, around 17h30, and I noticed how gloomy it was outside. It was dark and raining. I had many lights on inside the house and I had lit a couple of candles in the living room. I thought I'd take a picture to memorialize it. Trouble is, you can't tell by the photo how gloomy it felt.

It rained steadily most of the day on Wednesday. At least there was no wind, so the rain was vertical.

I did have to use the tripod and a long exposure to get enough light for the picture. That's why Novak Djokovic is a little blurry on the television screen. He wouldn't hold still long enough for me to snap the picture. Oh, and he won his match.

  1. But, you can tell how nice your living room area is :) I love these interior shots.

    1. We have a second, private living room upstairs. The downstairs living room is mostly a dining area.

  2. It may have been gloomy outside, but there's nothing gloomy about inside. So warm and inviting... except maybe tennis.

  4. I love your windows which give you available light when it's there.

  5. That's how it has been and still is here. Yesterday we had snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain in one day . Overnight freezing rain again and this morning it is wet with the sporadic power outage since nearly 200k houses are w/o electricity in the North and NE of the island. Tonight snow :-)
    The candle holder looks cute , matching the ash tray , I believe and the blue from the TV image.

    1. CHM gave Walt that candle holder many years ago. And the dish it matches isn't an ashtray, just something decorative. It works as a coaster.

  6. I was noticing all the photographs! Nice gallery. A very warm-looking and inviting place to enjoy, I believe! Not gloomy at all! Lonesome, though, I can imagine when Ken is away...
